Following the tradition of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton and A Aiichiro by Tsumao Awasaka, gentle, somewhat clumsy Sen Erisawa seems an unlikely detective, but repeatedly finds himself mixed up in mysterious cases. Erisawa unravels each mystery with his observation of the everyday life, insight into human nature and his love of bugs.

- A mother and daughter are found unconscious in accidents in different locations, is this coincidence or ...

and more.
