Synopsis
There are three kinds of swindler. One, called the ‘WHITE SWINDLER’ finds a mark, and steals money. The ‘RED SWINDLER’ preys on the other sex, and steals a mark’s body and soul. Then there is the ‘BLACK SWINDLER.’ Ignoring ordinary marks, targeting only the white and red swindlers, and preying on their flesh grown fat and corrupt with the money they have stolen, he is the worst of them all.
There is a boy who once became a victim of swindler and lost his family. Later, he turns into the most hideous “black swindler” to deceive only other swindlers. His name is Kurosaki. This time, he is requested by Reiko, whose daughter is sick, to hunt down a swindler named Ishigaki, who has defrauded her of money. But, behind Ishigaki, there is actually a bigger swindle which has even destabilized the Japanese economy. . .
