Three years after solving a series of cases involving missing women in the 1970s, publications researcher Mizuno Yuki and talented manga editor Daigo Shinji have lost touch with each other. Incidentally, Nanbu Masaharu, a legendary chief editor for a manga magazine for adult readers fell to his death from the top of a building. It was ruled as an accidental death. Before he died, it seemed he found an original manga manuscript that had been missing for years, and had returned it to its rightful owner. Mizuno was tasked to look into this incident. In the process, she crossed paths once again with Shinji, who took over Nanbu's job as chief editor. Together, they find clues that seem to indicate that Nanbu might have been murdered after all. One of the clues was an old drawing that seemed connected with the Shimoyama Incident, which is regarded as one of Japan's most famous post-war mysteries...
