First of all, Kirigoro Aiki, who is a rival Kogoro Akechi, was a unique rival to set the mad scientist as the main character, who was a famous detective of Akechi Kogoro in Tokyo at the beginning, Even if it is outside the prefecture, even if it is a Korea who crossed over the sea again, the main character of this work is narrowed to the end only in the city, its work is also serious and fantastic Although it was a favorable target up to that point, however, when a story Akechi Kogoro happened to fly to resolve the case of Korea, difficult situations are brought under the hero, but if this hero certainly compares with Akechi The man is bad. Regardless of the first victim, there is a possibility that the request has been killed at the time when the request is blown, so it can not be helped but after that the second victim who had been prevented beforehand was kidnapped as easily If it was Akechi Kogoro if this was sacrificed to the phrase which it had gone, there was something that I feel frustrated just to substitute the assistant's Kobayashi boy and keep the back of the criminal straightforwardly It was because Akechi Kogoro appeared in the final stage. The identity of the culprit who did not expect it was exactly revealed, but it is certainly true that it is certainly certain. Anyway it was a terrible obsession.

I thought that there was a scene where the Aircraft Universe appeared, but apparently it was a different work.
〓〓〓I have to read the other ... ....
In this work, the place of fingerprints is interesting.
Although Mr. Kawato could show the sight that imitated the scene of the past to the criminal also has atmosphere, Akechi appears after the remaining 60 pages.
I think that the pattern of this work has appeared where it does not appear from the beginning, I think there is no surprising (〓〓〓it may not be asked for it).

It is not good to kill an old woman, but in this work it was good to read without being depressed because the victim's "voice" is not so much.
However, Mr. Kawate who was revenged is not a man himself who did a tragic thing, so it is hard for her to hurt, and the two daughters have been killed is really sorry to say.
I do not think that the aftertaste is good (we will have fewer good ones), the whole will be "ordinary".

In this story, the so-called "scraping" is the main focus. The purpose of the criminal is to take revenge inside the man who killed the father. For that reason it takes over forty years or more to devise a plan, and it attacks the son of an enemy who has already died of illness and its sister.

Do not you hear about Yawata's ibu, plays that can be held in remote areas of the basement, or amazing space like rambling works? In addition, the bizarre fingerprint called triple fingerprint - this is the emblem of the devil in the title - made the story even more creepy.

Although it is not a bad thing to say that falling, but as usual the real culprit is going to self-judge, it is a bad thing but it was quite an interesting trick. Especially unexpected identity of fingerprint owner.
