Ryo didn’t believe in ghosts, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t haunted. Even ten years on, his parents’ murder cast a shadow over his life. It was their deaths that had made him decide to become a cop, hoping someday he might solve the case himself, learn who had killed them and why.
He’d naively thought getting the answers to his questions would give him some sort of closure. He couldn’t have been more wrong; the truth was tearing him apart. He’d known they weren’t drug smugglers, but hearing they’d been slaughtered by mistake…
He’d been better of not knowing.
