Volume 2 of this gripping thriller propels the man who calls himself Yamashita forward on his mission of vengeance. Released after 10 years in a secret prison, he was homing in on the clandestine lockup's location when volume 1 ended. Here he finds it and some of, or some people connected to, his erstwhile captors, only to have them recapture and then rerelease him. After scaring up an old friend who reconnects him with the bride he involuntarily jilted, he finds, however, that his former captors are keeping in touch. This is a movie-on-paper--a damn good one.
