summary: In the Commonwealth of Karakura, an innocent young woman is on trial for the murder of her sister. Ichigo Kurosaki, rookie inspector for the Metropolitan Police, feels duty-bound to investigate the case. What he doesn't know yet is that he's about to come face-to-face with the sordid, unscrupulous side of his beloved archipelago.
I'm hesitant to cross-post this to ichi_ruki because this fic of mine focuses on the murder mystery. It has a distinct lack of shippy-ness, aside from a moment or two in the second chapter. I guess this fic will be better appreciated by a Bleach fan who doesn't care if Ichigo's only smex is of the eyeball variety.
