Today Seicho is thought of as a writer of detective stories, and his "Stakeout" ("Harikomi"), which was written in 1952, is considered to be his first detective story. This paper analyzes three of his early stories from the viewpoint of narratology: "Stakeout," ''Memories of Fire" ("Hi no Kioku"), and "Face" ("Kao"), which were written in the first decade of his career as a writer. It can be concluded that Seicho started his detective stories with ''Memories of Fire" before "Stakeout," and that he aimed to combine reasoning and literariness in these two stories. In "Face," Seicho fused the two narrative types that he had tried in "Stakeout" and ''Memories of Fire."
