Old Boy Vol. 3 Edit

"The deadly game of cat-and-mouse continues! Imprisoned for a decade without trial or explanation--and then released just as unceremoniously--and now armed with a cell phone that his former torturer has provided for him, will Goto be able to hunt down the truth behind his decade in hell, or will he become even more his tormentor's plaything? No doubt, Goto's adversary still has a few surprises in store, and if Goto wants answers, he'll have to fight like the devil to get them." - Preview - WorldCat - ISBN 1593075707
