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)!
Still under a cloud of suspicion regarding his involvement with the coup d'etat, Jean continues to make his auditing rounds for the Inspection Department, collecting scraps of intel along the way. But with him and Director General Mauve passing each other like ships in the night, will anything come of his efforts? Meanwhile, the reason behind royal palace's curious obsession with Jean's little sister, Lotta, finally becomes clear...
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?
