Himekawa Reiko became an assistant inspector with the Tenth Homicide Section at the young age of 27 even though she was not on the career track. As the only female section chief in the First Investigative Division, she leads Team Himekawa, armed with her intuition, dramatic ideas and energy, and has solved many challenging cases. Her older subordinate Kikuta Kazuo, a sergeant, is initially skeptical of her when he is transferred to the team. However, he gradually comes to realise her competence and charm, and special feelings begin to grow. Reiko’s nemesis is Katsumata Kensaku, an assistant inspector with the Fifth Homicide Section. Although he boasts an overwhelming lead in the number of arrests, his illegal investigation methods have also drawn suspicion. Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
The show overall, in terms of episodic plots, is pretty good. Episodes 7-9 nearly lost me with the whole yakuza thing, probably because I would never fall in love with a yakuza, especially not one played by that actor. But the rest of the episodes, I thought were very compelling. The issue still stands of casting Kamenashi in a role without giving him a lot to do other than stand around silently supporting the female lead. That's not enough, imo. In terms of giving him more to do, Red Eyes is a better choice.
What I can say is that the drama was well-performed, very intense, and for those who don't mind the revenge-filled female psyche, would probably be an awesome choice. Sometimes I totally get characters like her and other times, not at all, as in this case. But that doesn't mean the drama wasn't worth my time. I just know that I'll never rewatch it.
