Overview
On a visit to London for a conference, Aramaki drops by to visit an old friend who wants to ask a favour. However, a group of corrupt police officers and some bungling thieves have other ideas and take the couple hostage. It is up to Kusanagi to use her feminine wiles to infiltrate the building and rescue the hostages.

Section 9 is assigned to protect a visiting Korean dignitary who has traveled to Japan to honour their war dead in Kagoshima. They suspect a terrorist plot to assassinate the dignitary. Meanwhile, Aramaki visits the memorial of Hideo Tsuijsaki, an old friend from his days working for Intelligence. Aramaki visits with Tsuijsaki's familiy and learns of the disturbing behaviour of his deceased friend's son. Could he be the assassin?

Section 9's next case is an investigation into a recent spate of mass-kidnappings. When the Prime Minister's own daughter goes missing, the team is forced to act quickly. Rumour has it that a crime syndicate is behind the kidnappings, harvesting the victims organs and selling them on the black market. As the investigation deepens, the conspiracy reaches the highest echelons of power. This case will test Section 9 like no other and will pit Kusanagi against an opponent who is more than her equal.

In 'Re-View' Togasa is on the trail of the Laughing Man once again, and this time, his investigations lead him towards a leading micro machine corporation and an NGO called the Sunflower Society. But events are about to take a deadly turn for the worse.
