    Summer in Revachol blooms like pond algae. Kim installs those helium headlights, and Harry re-finishes a 20-hour mind project. In eighteen days, they'll open the container. In eighteen days, they’ll push themselves and their work to the brink. Low on the horizon, a reckoning slavers, snarling and pulling on its leash.

    In eighteen days, the case will release it.

    Summary

    “Why is everything you do so damn cool?” you blurt out, then wish you hadn’t.

    Kim smiles. Without hesitation, he begins to tug off the second glove, eyes on you, warm and knowing, though you aren’t entirely sure what it is he knows.

Kim Kitsuragi has been up since the dawn and has already decided he's over this week. It's a mild Tuesday morning in June '51. The spectre of Communism hangs over Revachol like a burial shroud.

    Summary

    Three-and-one-third bodies have been found in an abandoned vehicle on the riverbank.

    It would be a challenging case even without the bad weather, weapons smuggling, white nationalists, industrial accidents, and the concept of pedigree dog breeds—but over it all hangs one troubling question: What is it that fascinates you about Kim Kitsuragi? Is it working class camaraderie? A sinister hex of mysterious origin? Did you imprint on him in Martinaise, like an amnesiac duckling? If you don’t figure out what’s going on soon, people are going to start to notice. Especially him.

    And sooner or later? Everything is related to the case.
