At Yokota Base in Japan, a collection of nervous American soldiers stand guard at the brink of the Vietnam War. Although they fear the enemy outside their base, an even more dangerous enemy waits within — bloodthirsty vampires walk among them. Appearing human, the beasts lurk in secret among the soldiers, waiting for the moment to attack. Saya, a fierce and beautiful vampire hunter, is sent to lead a team of undercover agents whose mission is to decide who is human and who is not, and wipe out the vampires before they can wipe out the base. But even though Saya is a powerful warrior with a lethal Japanese sword, her skills may not be enough.
This novel is set in Japan in the late 1960s, where the youth are organizing a violent uprising against the government. Part of this revolt is the politically active student, Rei, whose fate is one day, coincidentally, bound to a mysterious girl, Saya. An exciting criminal case, and a voyage into the discovery of vampirism, takes its course.
