Detective Sergeant Mariko Oshiro has been promoted to Japana€™s elite Narcotics unita€”and with this promotion comes a new partner, a new case, and new danger. The underboss of a powerful yakuza crime syndicate has put a price on her head, and hea€™ll lift the bounty only if she retrieves an ancient iron demon mask that was stolen from him in a daring raid. However, Mariko has no idea of the tumultuous past carried within the maska€”or of its deadly link with the famed Inazuma blade she wields. The secret of this mask originated hundreds of years before Mariko was born, and over time the maska€™s power has evolved to bend its owner toward destruction, stopping at nothing to obtain Inazuma steel. Marikoa€™s fallen sensei knew much of the maska€™s hypnotic power and of its mysterious link to a murderous cult. Now Mariko must use his notes to find the mask before the cult can bring Tokyo to its kneesa€”and before the underboss decides her time is up....People were running for the stairs even as her gunshota#39;s echo reverberated in the tunnels. ... The bullet hole was a neat, perfectly circular thing, just like in the movies. ... some special effects artist had chosen to perfect the fatal gunshot wound to the head. ... She knew shea#39;d have to make a moral assessment of what shea#39;d done, and she knew it had to come soon, but for now she had civilians to tend to.
