Keigo is a private detective by day and an assassin by night. He’s never questioned his way of life until he finds a beautiful young man collapsed on the street. For some inexplicable reason he takes the stranger in, opening his home and his heart to the woebegone youth. But Keigo has just entered a world far more dangerous than any he’s known as a killer. Emiya isn’t just a beautiful young male, he’s a psychic with extraordinary abilities and he’s runaway from a shadow organization that wants him back – at any cost!

Danger, love and secrets! It’s a heady mix for this stand alone tale of intrigue and seduction. Keigo is tall, dark and dangerous but he has a soft spot for Emiya that defies everything logical about his life. The heart has its own logic which is tested when the organization tracks Emiya down and tries to take him by force. How unlucky for them that Emiya has an assassin for a boyfriend! But the dangers are great and soon one abduction too many, forces Emiya to make a choice in order to save Keigo. Hamamuro who is in charge of Emiya seeks to control him. When he finds out just how deep Emiya’s feelings for Keigo run, it enflames the man. Twisted jealousy sparks into aggressive actions while Keigo fights to reach Emiya and save him in time. It’s a nail biter to be sure!

It’s suspenseful, thrilling, and holds more plot that the average yaoi. There are sweet moments like a first date at an amusement park, then the discovery of how Emiya’s powers are changing and what that might mean for any hope of happiness these two young men crave.

The manga has a good, solidly appealing art style. The men are a range of handsome to beautiful, the danger scenes are well done and the romantic imagery is intimate and erotic. Can a killer and a gentle psychic find true love and make it last? Find out in this stand alone manga!


IN SUMMARY:
A young man with psychic abilities and an assassin cross paths and hearts in this thrilling one-shot action romance.
