Cage by Kenzo Kitakata
Book DescriptionKazuya Takino used to be a yakuza gangster but all he wants now is a quiet life running a supermarket. For the time being, the |Manager Takino| persona seems to hold up, but when someone attempts to blackmail his store, the beast in him chafes against the bars of the cage he's put himself in. Once he leaves the cage he can never go back in. Pursuing Takino is Detective Takagi, smoker of French cigarettes and reader of stark modernist poems. Takino is what every man fantasises himself to be, Takagi is what he can soberly aspire to become.
