Newly reinstated to the Homicide Division and transferred to a precinct in Tokyo, Inspector Iwata is facing superiors who don't want him there and is assigned a recalcitrant partner, Noriko Sakai, who'd rather work with anyone else. After the previous detective working the case killed himself, Iwata and Sakai are assigned to investigate the slaughter of an entire family, a brutal murder with no clear motive or suspect. At the crime scene, they find puzzling ritualistic details. Black smudges. A strange incense smell. And a symbol―a large black sun. Iwata doesn't know what the symbol means but he can hear it whispering to him: I am here. I am not finished.
