review 1: The book opens with Yoshitaka Mashiba telling his wife Ayane that he is going to divorce her because they have been married a year and she has not conceived a child. It is not long before Yoshitaka is poisoned while Ayane is on a trip to visit her parents. Detective Kusanagi investigates diligently but is hampered by his feelings for Ayane. Young female detective Utsumi is more objective but is at a loss to explain how the crime was committed. She turns to physics professor Yukawa (Professor Galileo) to come up with a theory. A very tightly written (and translated) mystery.
