Synopsis

A boy whose family is murdered becomes a gifted con man and takes sweet revenge on the killer.
The case of a family's death was ruled a double murder-suicide by the father, but it was actually an intricate murder plot. The family's 9 year old eldest son Koichi saw the killer's face, and luckily survived. He tried to tell the police about the real killer, but no one believed him. As he insisted that it was true, people started calling him a liar and giving him the cold shoulder. Eventually, he grew up to be just the clever liar that his reputation suggests. He became a con man and made a living abroad. But in the foreign city of Bangkok, he met the man he remembers to be the real killer.
He returns to Japan to seek the truth, and with the help of his fellow con men, he uncovers the identities of the people involved in the murders 30 years ago. These people have used the crime as a springboard to get ahead in the world. Claiming false names and professions, Koichi gains the trust of these people and lays traps to hit each of them where it hurts the most.
The boy who was robbed of his family and his father's honor by lies 30 years ago has become an exceptional con man, who uses lies as weapons to pursue the truth.
