Akutagawa, the acclaimed mystery writer, is in serious trouble. His plot twists are clever, his tricks still flawless, yet the author’s recent novels ring lifeless and dull. A young stranger, Naoki, appears at the writer's remote lake-side home with a timely offer. He'll be Akutagawa’s assistant, cooking, cleaning, doing whatever necessary, just to be close to the great author and his work. Most fortuitous of all, Akutagawa finds his young fan has a surprising talent for writing and hires him to ghostwrite his next novel. Yet is everything as lucky as it seems?
