Story

The MRI machine “Leviathan” is about to be unveiled as the centerpiece of Japan’s first International AI (autopsy imaging) Center.
The new device boasting microscopic levels of resolution is the focus of public attention. Dr. Taguchi, a psychosomatic specialist at Tojo University Hospital and Shiratori of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare who is driving the opening of the AI Center, are pushing for complete reform of the current autopsy system – an initiative jointly backed by the national government, municipality and Tojo University Hospital. The highly anticipated kick-off symposium in the Great Lecture Hall is just ten days away…when a threatening letter is delivered to the Hospital.
“In March, I will destroy Tojo University Hospital and the Tower of Cerberus.”
If Cerberus is the three-headed watchdog of Hades in Greek mythology, the “Tower of Cerberus” must be the “Portal of Death” – the AI Center…
Who sent the letter? And why?
Meanwhile, the hospital is baffled by an unprecedented rash of suspicious deaths which cannot be explained through autopsy. And Shiratori knows one of the victims…
The opening day of the AI Center…the worst day in history – one that will rock the foundation of the medical world --- is about to begin.
