Shinya Ryuzaki plays a pivotal role in the national police force as liaison between the police, Diet politicians, bureaucrats and the mass media. When he learns about the murder of a violent gang member through the newspapers instead of the usual direct reporting to him by media outlets, he is perplexed and seeks answers from an old friend and colleague on the police force, Shuntaro Itami, who is now Chief of Criminal Investigations. A series of ensuing crimes pointing to the same perpetrators begins to uncover links to a major unsolved scandal from the past, stirring up shadowy forces of corruption inside the police department. Ryuzaki forces himself to cast aside protocols of rank and status in favor of taking a thoroughly rational approach to solving the crime, embroiling his friend, Itami, in a lonely battle for justice.
