■Synopsis of this work
The incident occurred on the day of the rehearsal for the "Miracle Show" to be held on the rooftop stage of Tobu Department Store. When reporter Itsuki Yosuke, who had smelled a crime, entered the store, he found detective Mayuzumi Daigo there. Upon seeing the red roses left at the scene, the two of them said in unison, "This case involves the puppet master of Hell, Takato Yoichi!" Kindaichi was out of Tokyo, but he agreed to cooperate with the investigation remotely, and Mayuzumi Daigo and the detective in charge, Kishitani Yukio, called in the best detectives from all over the country. The detectives then worked with the double detective team of Kindaichi and Mayuzumi to solve the case!
