Everyone at this hotel wears a mask of some kind… And anyone could be a killer
In this adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s best-selling novel, Detective Kosuke Nitta (Takuya Kimura; Blade of the Immortal) goes undercover in a high-end Tokyo hotel after a code of numbers found at three seemingly unrelated murders lead him to believe the next murder will take place there. When he’s assigned the front desk, hotel employee Naomi Yamagishi (Masami Nagasawa; Your Name) is not happy. She’s dedicated to upholding the highest standards for guests of the hotel, and prioritises their safety and comfort above all else. However, Kosuke’s scruffy appearance and single-minded focus on his detective work are not exactly front desk material.
She’s going to need to clean up his act, and fast, because every guest and staff member is a potential suspect in the case. The two will need to set aside their differences if they want to come out unscathed, but will they be able to learn to work together before the killer strikes again?
