Akechi Kogoro is the third generation in a line of famous detectives. But while he’s inherited his famous grandfather’s deductive ability, he’s weak-willed and has a cowardly streak, making him an all-too-human sleuth. Although he’s sometimes dragged kicking and screaming into the fray, Akechi finds himself going head to head with the criminals every time.
