The victim was a member of a trade delegation sent by Lord Kojima, and all evidence implicates a maid who died ten years ago! Unless Tomoe and the long-eared ronin can solve this mystery, treaty negotiations will dissolve completely … and another throat may be clawed out. What is the dark story behind the ghost of Geishu Castle? The hauntings begin in this first half of a two-part story, "The Ghost in the Well"!

    Victor Von Doom has lost everything he cares about; his science, his ego, and his destiny were all left on the walls of the American University where his dreams were shattered to bits. Now Victor wanders through Eastern Europe, a man without a purpose, a man without a face.

    But will the Cold War era allow a man like Victor Von Doom to disappear, no matter how much he may want to? This is the story of the missing years between when Doom left America and when his armor was forged, the story of how a broken man decided to take his life back and make the world pay for his disgrace.
