“They say no good deed goes unpunished. That went double for Little Yokai.”
My name’s Keiko Miller. I’ve been an agent at the Los Angeles Bureau of Souls office for four years, and I’m one of the best. I ought to be – I’m part Yokai. Trust me when I say I know all about the supernatural entities who spilled into Japan thirty years ago. I’m one of them.
But that’s a secret I guard like my job and my life depend on it, because they literally do. So when I secretly help a Yokai who winds up dead just hours later, I’m worried about more than just finding her killer.
Now I’m carrying around a metric ton of guilt and trying to solve this mystery without giving away my Yokai secret. The smart thing would be to play nice with my partner, mark the case unsolved, and quietly walk away. Guess I’m just not that smart.
