Against the backdrop of the Edo treasury devaluing currency and driving many into poverty, Hanzo Itami enforces the law without regard to status. He shows inadequate respect to the treasurer, who wants him dead. He finds a young woman dead following an abortion, and he enters a temple without permission looking for evidence. He tortures and then sexually assaults the temple’s priestess to get information. He’s then assigned to protect the mint from a notorious thief. There he closets himself in the bedroom of the mint’s mistress. He waits. The thief arrives – but other crimes are afoot. Devalued currency, white slavery, and government corruption lead Hanzo to one conclusion.
