American executive, Charles Dorian, is found in a hotel with the body of a young model, who was strangled with her own hair ribbon. Tokyo prosecutors appear to have an unbeatable case until Mick Sanchez arrives. He works for an international investigation agency hired by Dorians company to protect its image. With the help of an investigator with a Tokyo agency, Sanchez uncovers high-level vice that led to the womans death and the sordid reason Dorian refuses to cooperate in his own defense. The story of corporate betrayal and abuse of official power integrates unusual cultural aspects. The title is an irony. Descent from heaven, in Japanese amakudari, describes golden parachutes granted to top bureaucrats by industries they once regulated. In the novel, the descent is the hard fall of a corrupt official.
