Publishers Description
He killed 2 gangsters for the woman he loves, for Makiko. The sensation of the murder on Koji's hands is still fresh. Now he's running from the police as well as the mob.

Unlike your ordinary hero, Koji kidnaps a boy during his getaway. On his trail is "the Old Dog" Detective Takagi.

Another unique gem from the master stylist!
". While Kitakata does not yet have the movie-based appeal of Koji Suzuki, his tales of gangsters and artists take the elements of American crime fiction and substitute culturally adventurous choices for readers who like to have their worlds upended. And since the world of crime fiction is essentially all about having your world upended, it stands to reason that these novels will offer some dark delights. " - Ain't It Cool News
