Alternative title:
戰慄之聲 (Chinese (Taiwan))
Themes: cyberpunk, police
Plot Summary:
A pair of police officers stumble upon a cult following abducting children. Through a series of events we see the advent of the Safeguard.
During an investigation into a series of child kidnappings, Musubi Susono and her partner, Kloser encounter the horrific representatives of a secretive order that seem to have mastered death itself. Kloser doesn't make it (at least not as a physical entity) and, with the very state machinery she belongs to being turned against her by persons unknown, Susono finds herself fighting not only the minions of the order but also the equally horrifying plans of their shadowy adversaries, the Safeguard organisation.
