When political conspiracies abound, preserving the peace is no piece of cake. It's up to one deceptively aloof hero to sniff out corruption in this atmospheric thriller by Natsume Ono (House of Five Leaves, Ristorante Paradiso)!
Like a wisp of smoke, political intrigue entwines around ACCA vice-chairman Jean Otus and those both near to him and far. What secrets from the past connect Nino to the royal family? Why is Lotta's life threatened by a shadowy assassin? And who is the true mastermind behind the coup that threatens unrest upon the people of Dowa? Thoroughly embroiled in all the drama, Jean alone holds the key to the future of ACCA...
ACCA vice-chairman Jean Otus handles his duties with such aplomb that it might make his job seem easy. But it is by no means a piece of cake...certainly not when his superiors suspect him of treason and put a tail on him, one who happens to be very close to home...
ACCA vice-chairman Jean Otus would much rather be talking about bread, but everyone around him seems intent on talking about the coup. When his audit in Suitsu goes sideways and Jean lands smack in the middle of open rebellion, will the swirling rumors about his involvement with the plot gain credence?
