2014/08/25 Very Good(+2 pnt) [Original Japanese review]

I have never read such a detective story.
The act of inferring a criminal itself is usually treated as "good thing".
However, in cases where it is not backed up by reliable logical evidence or motivation (fantasy, if you do not leave a delusional area), that is only an irresponsible act.
Moreover, it has the danger that it may become irreparable in some cases.
After all, the main character was captured in the labyrinth of suspicion, as soon as he was long in apprehensive power, as well as having strong moral heart to move the sense of justice.

Well, a lot of tricks under construction are strange novelists, which are considered to be a masterpiece collection of Oe Jun Haru, but this can be said as "masterpiece collection of Edogawa Ranpo".
Because both are quotations from Mr. His work. It is so interesting that it is almost all-star enough to do so far.
The development of the angry waves that make two turns is readable enough. However, although the aftertaste is rather bad, it has a unique finish.
The love romance that the hero and the heroine gradually increase their radicality are extremely vivid and very erotically depicted.
This work which is various and unusual already already. Worth reading.

The last thunderbolt is wonderful. The mystery ends as a mystery but it is good.

A woman the detective novelist Samukawa met was a former lover that Mr. Oyamada separated, and was threatened from Hirata,
While receiving consultation, her husband 's husband is killed.
It seems that Hirata is now known as a detective novelist Oe,
Is the criminal really just him?

[good point]
"There is Ms. Hirata in this house"
There are atmosphere, such as scenes spoken to the ceiling and so on.
I also felt that Oe also announced the novel called "play in the attic", adding that charm.

(1) In the second half, there are places where explanation is good.
(2) That the truth itself is correct as it is, it is that it ends with not being clear.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Although the last is not clarified, it is a work that has a reading.
