Descendants of Darkness: v. 3 - Yoko Matsushita Warning for sexual assault and attempted sexual assault apply heavily on this one.The base story is a good one - a mysterious ghost, questions of class and rank privilege, the way different people can view the same person differently based on their history and how that can cause conflict, all aboard the claustrophobic setting of an ocean liner at sea. It's not that well played, however. The mangaka still seems to have some problems winding things down and whatever some of the side notes earlier might have said, this is a very yaoi book, and it serves that aspect of itself over a non-awkward resolution to a gory and sometimes really interesting crime story.
