Synopsis

“Detective chasing Detective?!" A suspense masterpiece that portrays private detective work.
The original work is Detectives versus Detectives, the series by Keisuke Matsuoka that has sold more than 400,000 copies. And now the bestselling work has been adapted to the television medium by employing dynamic action, frequent foreshadowing, unpredictable developments, and fresh visual expressions.
The main character, Rena Sasaki, has a sharp mind, an extremely strong memory, and is attractive to boot. However, no one has ever seen her smile. Rena has the odd desire to “learn everything there is to know about private detectives, but I don’t want to become one.” Actually, her younger sister, Sakura, was murdered by a stalker, who was informed of Sakura’s whereabouts by an unknown private detective.
Rena starts working at Suma Research, a mid-sized private investigation agency. She’s just one of many investigators there, researching and pursuing crooked detectives as part of the newly-established Counter Detective Division.
After a year goes by, the job-hunting Kotoha Minemori has an interview at Suma Research. The president of the company, Suma, gives Kotoha a job as Rena’s assistant. From the get-go, Kotoha is exposed to Rena’s harsh working conditions, which surpass her imagination.
