Now he is discovering that all signs of his existence have been erased. Unaware that he is a discarded fictional creation, he resumes his investigation. Interspersed are chapters from a spy novel featuring a Korean-American PI with anti-Japanese attitudes, the commercially viable character for whom Sumida has been excised.
