Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and Murder
Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious Japanese inspector, is on the hunt for a serial killer who has left a trail of bodies across the globe. The latest victim was slashed backstage during a Scorpion Tail concert in a small town in Georgia.
The indie band’s wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics catches Toshiro’s attention. He delves into the band members’ sordid pasts, and discovers that they are linked to the most recent victim.
MonaLisa—aka Queen Sting—the lead singer, hatches a plan to distract the inspector in order to protect her band brothers. In a turn of events, she becomes attracted to him. She wants to give in, but if she acts on her desire, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keeps, and that will put her band at risk.
Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, but there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only one who is fixated on her.
Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the kill list?
“One day, I’ll soar to the heavens and touch the sky. But today, I’d rather play in the flames.” ~ MonaLisa

After he explains why he’s stopped, Jane tells him that two women were killed inside the house and their ghosts were trying to get the attention of his boss.

His boss, after a lengthy call to MI5, informed them that Gavin was supposed to head the murder squad and the new extension, mothballed for some time, was their new department. It wasn’t long before they were called out. Gavin took charge, but after a few cases with the same MO, he soon realised they’d need the help of the other cell. Outnumbered on this case, and the safety of the human side of his team paramount, he made the call. No other option.
