Mathematical Goodbye (1999)
Hiroshi Mori

Mori is a popular author of mystery novels in Japan and a former professor of engineering at Nagoya University. Li-Chang Hung, who has read the books translated into Chinese, has suggested that I add some of them to my list of mathematical fiction. Unfortunately, I cannot say much about these books or their mathematical content since I have not read them. Just from the title, I have guessed that "Mathematical Goodbye" is an example of Mori's mathematical fiction. If anyone can provide additional information (or tell me which others of Mori's many works of fiction should also be listed here) I would be very grateful.
