    En l'an 64 du règne de l'empereur Shôwa, une fillette de sept ans est enlevée et assassinée sans que l'on parvienne à arrêter son ravisseur. Impossible pour le commissaire Mikami d'oublier cette affaire.
    En 2002, quatorze années ont passé et la plaie reste ouverte dans cette région du nord de Tokyo. La prescription des faits approche mais pas question de baisser les bras. Le chef de la police nationale doit l'annoncer au père de la victime et à la presse ; Mikami a une semaine pour organiser la visite, sans se laisser envahir par ses propres démons. Il lui faudra débusquer la vérité aux sources les plus profondes de l'affaire et de l'âme humaine, là où il n'aurait jamais pensé la trouver...

    Hideo Yokoyama

    A collection of four novellas: each taking place in 1998, each set in the world of Six Four , and each centring around a mystery and the unfortunate officer tasked with solving it. SEASON OF SHADOWS "The force could lose face . . . I want you to fix this." Personnel's Futawatari receives a horrifying memo forcing him to investigate the behaviour of a legendary detective with unfinished business. CRY OF THE EARTH "It's too easy to kill a man with a rumour." Shinto of Internal Affairs receives an anonymous tipoff alleging a Station Chief is visiting the red-light district ­- a warning he soon learns is a red herring. BLACK LINES "It was supposed to be her special day." Section Chief Nanao, responsible for the force's 49 female officers, is alarmed to learn her star pupil has not reported for duty, and is believed to be missing. BRIEFCASE "We need to know what he's going to ask." On the eve of a routine debate, Political Liaison Tsuge learns a wronged politician is preparing his revenge. He must now quickly dig up dirt to silence him. Prefecture D continues Hideo Yokoyama's exploration of the themes of obsession, saving face, office politics and inter-departmental conflicts.
