Summary Black test car: In a bitter, take-no-prisoners corporate war between the Tiger Motorcar Company and their competitors, the Yamato Company, undercover spies have infiltrated both sides. As Tiger prepares to launch its newest "Pioneer" car and a prototype bursts into flames, Onada heads a secretive task force to root out Yamato's spy, and find out what they can about the competitor's familiar-looking new model.
The black report: A young public prosecutor in Chiba is assigned to a case in which a company president has been murdered. The police quickly determine the particulars of the crime, leading the prosecutors' office to feel the case may be readily solved.
