In Japanese folklore, a ghost that arises from the burial of a pregnant woman is called an Ubume... In the first of the Kyogokudo series, the hero Kyogokudo is an exorcist with a twist: he doesn't believe in ghosts. To circumnavigate his clients' inability to come to grips with a problem being their own, he creates fake supernatural explanations that he exorcises with staged rituals. In his first adventure, Kyogokudo must unravel the mystery of a woman who's been pregnant for 20 months and find her husband, who disappeared 2 months into her pregnancy.
