After a brutal murder investigation ripped apart his life, Kosuke Iwata quit both his job as a detective with the Tokyo Police Department and his country, leaving Japan for the hopefully sunnier shores of Los Angeles, California. But even though he's left his old life behind, he still has to make a living and Iwata sets up shop as a private investigator. But murder still follows him.

Approached by an old contact whose daughter has been murdered and the case laid to rest — unsolved—Iwata agrees to investigate out of loyalty. But what seems initially like a cold-blooded murder takes a different turn when a homeless witness recalls the murderer’s parting words: “I’m sorry.”

From the depths of Skid Row to the fatal expanse of the Sonoran Desert, Iwata tracks the disparate pieces of a mysterious and heartbreaking puzzle. But the more he unearths, the clearer it is that things are not as they appear and people are not as they seem.

Lives untangle, fates converge, and blood is spilled as Inspector Iwata returns.
