Her father is the chief of police, her mother a people woman, and her older brother Yamato, a cop. Ran refuses to take on a blue suit, or walk a road her parents paved for her. But, when the question of righting ten wrongs for 500 yen comes up...how can she refuse? Ran is ready and willing to catch a purse snatched, who happens to use Ran for more than she knows. Now Ran is being interrogated by cops, for someone is phone hunting, using her name! Even Rei was dragged into this one!
