College is a whole new adventure, rife with challenges, opportunities, and cold-blooded killers. Fresh from unmasking an assassin on a posh island paradise, Ii-chan is finally an ultra-cool college student--jaded, sarcastic, and not exactly consumed by academic ambition. Now more interested in angst and anomie than in catching killers, Ii-chan figures that danger is a thing of the past. Wrong! There's a homicidal maniac loose in Kyoto, a perp with the soul of an artist whose talent is apparent in the inspired way he festoons his crime scenes with body parts.
