Abstract:

Seventeen years after an air disaster of unprecedented scale occured near his newspaper office, reporter Kazumasa Yuuki makes good on a promise he made during that supercharged week and solves a mystery.

1985: Kazumasa Yuuki, a reporter at the North Kanto Times, runs a daily gauntlet of power struggles and office politics that plague its newsroom. When an air disaster occurs on the paper's doorstep, its staff is united by an unimaginable horror-- and a once-in-a-lifetime scoop. 2003: Seventeen years later Yuuki remembers the emotionally charged seven days that changed his and his colleagues' lives. He does so while making good on a promise he made that fateful week-- one that holds the key to its last unsolved mystery and represents Yuuki's final, unconquered fear. -- adapted from jacket
