Gojin, the ghost lawyer, is finally back.

“I’m sorry. Don’t look for me. Dami.”
Kil Yeong-in is not over the sudden departure of his wife last year. Since then, his life has seemed empty and senseless. He has thought of suicide, but he cannot bring himself to do it. Until the day he came across an online ad. A doctor was offering a “mental suicide” for people like him, for those who wanted to end their sorrows but continue to live. Why not, at this point? So he goes to the strange office of Dr. Yi Tak-o. At the same time, Gojin, the famous “ghost lawyer”, investigates a murder committed almost before his eyes in a motel. A murder that seems to be linked to a certain Dr. Yi Tak-o... After Le portrait de la Traviata, a new investigation of the lawyer Gojin, tortuous and machiavellian as one could wish!
