When he pulls away the veil, he is confronted by the face of death: a severed head staring straight at him. The shock is too much for the gentle old mans heart and he falls dead. For hardboiled, twenty-year veteran detective Keith Gallagher of the San Francisco Police Departments elite Homicide Detail, the grisly murder is only a prelude to the most difficult case of his career. At first, Gallagher is frustrated by a shocking number of similar homicides that terrorize the city, and the lack of any clue that could crack the case. However, things go from bad to worse as he struggles to end the reign of terror, all the while encumbered by the politics, political correctness, self-interests, and racial tensions that exist within the police department, forcing him into a struggle to maintain his own sense of ethics and humanity- and ultimately, to risk his life to protect the one person he holds most dear. This is the second exciting illustrated volume of the San Francisco Police Chronicles, by former police officer Hayato Tokugawa, continuing the saga of S.F.P.D. officers Brian ONeil and John Kelly, Inspector Keith Gallagher and his Japanese-American wife Keiko, and Gaki Tachibana, which began with the first volume, Angel Dust. And like Angel Dust, The Bundori Murders is the real story of real people who lived, worked, and sometimes died on the streets of San Francisco.
