Summary

A serial killer in Japan is chopping off heads. An unlikely pair of journalists try not to lose theirs. 
 
Being a photographer at a Tokyo newspaper is no walk in the park—unless you’re Akio Tsukino and only get assigned to shoot parades and park festivals. All that changes when a serial killer starts chopping off heads in nearby Kofu. Akio maneuvers his way onto the assignment in order to prove himself and get closer to enigmatic staff writer Masami Sato.  
 
When the investigation takes a supernatural turn, the unlikely partners find themselves caught between solving the mystery and saving their own lives.  
 
In this thrilling and imaginative debut by Tristram Lowe, getting the story may cost them their heads.

    I’ve lived a longer life than most. And I survive by staying under the radar and not pissing off the local Night Walker Family here in Atlanta, Georgia.  
     
    Until some schmuck left a dead body in the lobby of a local historic building for the public to see. A building that just also happens to belong to the city’s most prominent and powerful Families. 
     
    So who do they call to investigate? Me. Why…because I can see things most people can’t. I’ve solved several cases where the perps aren’t human and the punishment not within the usual legal system.  
     
    Who am I? I’m Ren Grainger. I’m a free Ghoul.  
     
    But I’m also a Chevalier and bound to fight for the Night Walkers. Even if they take my life.
