A Midsummer's Equation

By Keigo Higashino

 

The dying resort town of Hari Cove, Japan is divided sharply over the plan to have an offshore underwater-mining operation along its shores which promises to boost the nation's economy.  In order to shed some light on the situation, physicist Manabu Yukawa is asked to present at what will be a very heated town meeting. The next day, Tsukahara, a former Tokyo police detective, turns up dead at the bottom of the cliffs.  Local police would like to label the scene an accident but autopsy results reveal otherwise and Manabu, known as "Detective Galileo", is drawn into the case.
