An endlessly ingenious battle across Japan between dogged detective Akechi Kogoro and the many-faced thief Gold Mask

Can an ace detective outwit a thief with many faces?

They call him ‘Gold Mask’: a fiendishly clever master of disguise whose crime spree has shocked Tokyo. The dogged detective Akechi Kogoro is on the trail, and soon the two become locked in a frenzied battle of wits as his seemingly superhuman nemesis leads a chase across Japan, gleefully tricking the police at every turn. Will this ingenious villain’s true identity be revealed – and will he, eventually, make a mistake?
