Tokyo, 1991, rich and glittering: the city of twelve million dreams-and just as many nightmares, none darker than the vision Subaru retains of his meeting under the cherry tree with Seishiro as a child. The kindly Seishiro begins to show a sinister face to the mirror as Subaru's grandmother, the matriarch of the Sumeragi clan, arrives in Tokyo-warning her young relative of what she has foreseen-and never to remove the stylish gloves she has insisted he wear all these years. What will be revealed, and what touched, in the conclusion to Tokyo Babylon . . . ?
