Synopsis: Death is their business, and business is good.
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) M audience.
Jonah is a child soldier, born amidst the chaotic conflicts that rage across West Asia, his family lost to a war fueled by weapons supplied by the so-called Merchants of Death--international arms dealers. Despite Jonah's hatred of weapons and violence, he employs both extremely well in the service of high-flying arms dealer Koko Hekmatyar and her band of mercenaries. Their journey through the dark underbelly of the world's arms markets may lead only to damnation, but will Jonah one day make his way back to the light? Only one thing is certain: it's going to be a long, hard road out of hell...
With Valmet and Jonah away in Africa, the assassins Dominique, Liliane and Grégoire make their move to wipe out Koko. Meanwhile, Valmet shakes off Jonah's unwanted company and goes after a factory owned by her old enemy, Chan. Valmet means to settle an old score with Chan, now head of the Hong Kong-based conglomerate Taishinhai Consu. Getting to Chan won't be easy, and Valmet would do well to remember the Chinese proverb, "He who seeks revenge should dig two graves."
