Switch: Volume 12

by Naked Ape (Saki Otoh and Nakamura Tomomi), 174 pages

Narita, an investigator in the Special Anti-Organized Crime Unit, recalls his days as a rookie 16 years ago and his first encounter with Kai, then just a child still reeling from the trauma of witnessing his parents' murder.  How do Narita's dead partner's betrayal, now-rookie Kai's father's investigations, and Kai's missing memories of that time link to the current upheaval in the world of illegal drugs?

The art in this series is its biggest drawback, but if you can put up with it and make out the most important bits, the plot's pleasantly knotty and interesting.
