Yusa Kiyoharu from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department is a cool-headed detective who is in charge of investigations on the frontline and will do whatever it takes to achieve his objectives. One day, when he wakes up in a mountain hut in a forest with the wind blowing fiercely. The first thing that jumps out at him is the dead body of a female detective Usui Kaoru lying beside him … … And then the gun in his right hand. The circumstances suggest that he killed her. However, there is a gap of several months in Kiyoharu’s memory for some reason. He feels irritation rather than panic. There is no reason or logic for him to kill her. But he cannot dismiss that possibility now that he has lost his memory. Did he kill her or was he framed by someone? Kiyoharu erases evidence that will make him a suspect and leaves the hut. However, he immediately gets a call from the police to convene at the murder scene. This time, he heads to the mountain hut that he was at just moments before as a detective. Kaoru died two days ago. Kiyoharu’s absence without leave during this period coupled with his reputation as the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s cancer, lead the investigators to regard him with suspicion. Meanwhile, Kiyoharu is told by Nanbu Shusuke, the head of the First Investigation Division, to take care of Kaoru’s only son, Katsuki. Eventually, Kaoru’s murder gets linked with the 1 billion yen heist that she was pursuing just before her death. In fact, individuals related to the police are suspected of involvement in the heist which was already regarded as solved, and Kaoru lost her life while investigating this. Now everyone is a suspect in Kaoru’s murder. Kiyoharu’s buddies turn enemies overnight and he is pursued as a murder suspect. His only partner is Kaoru’s son, Katsuki.
