is there only one killer, or a copycat, too?
October, 1991. Ex-cop and reluctant P.I. Shig Sato finds out that serial killer has struck, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department wants to keep the crime quiet to prevent another wave of panic, and discourage copycat crimes. When Sato is asked to find a friend's tenant who has disappeared, the clues lead him to discover decades of unexplained disappearances of bar hostesses, presumed missing or dead. It's a journey that takes Sato to the depths of the unspoken horror of throwaway lives in modern Tokyo.
