When the body of a skilled samurai is found along the road to Yamashina in feudal Japan, the search begins for his killer. Detective Heigo Kobayashi takes the case but finds only dead-end clues and no firsthand witnesses.

Victor Santos (Polar, Violent Love) writes and illustrates a crime and mystery story inspired by Ryunosuke Akutagawa's tales featuring the heroic commissioner Heigo Kobayashi.

o Part 1 was originally only published in Spain; this volume collects both parts in one complete hardcover.

    Both tales here are fantastic, with characters and stories that tie the two together. I, for one, would love to see more from Detective Heigo. It felt like a crime TV show, but with samurai. Great characterization, emotional moments, twist, turns, and one of the best graphic novels of 2017. Read Full Review
