As he tries to track down the history of black sun symbol, puzzle out the motive for the crime, and connect this to other murders, Iwata finds himself racing another clock--the superiors who are trying to have him removed for good. Haunted by his own past, his inability to sleep, and a song, 'Blue Light Yokohama, ' Iwata is at the center of a compelling, brilliantly moody, layered novel ..."--Amazon.com
