cover synopsis

Returning from Taowajan, Iria finds her apartment ransacked and one of her brother's most powerful weapons is missing. After placing a call, she discovers that her boss supposedly died in a car crash and there's no record of the incident aboard the Karma! Iria's in the middle of a major conspiracy -- and someone's out to silence her before she can discover the truth.

Iria is on the run -- but now she's not alone. She's rescued by another bounty hunter with orders from a mysterious client to keep her alive at all costs. All she knows is that she holds the key to exposing the conspiracy within Tedan Tippedai Corporation -- and their link to Zeiram. When she decides to confront the corporation, will she be beyond the reach of her mysterious benefactor?

Later, Iria returns to Taowajan -- as a full-fledged, licensed bounty hunter. Her mission: retrieve Dr. Touka, the foremost expert on Zeiram, who was taken hostage during a revolt. Things get complicated when Iria discovers that something's killed the previous rescue teams and the terrorists -- and it looks like Zeiram.
