Each year, the Ushiromiya family gathers at the secluded mansion of its patriarch, the elderly Kinzo. It has been six years since Battler joined his cousins at the annual event, but their happy reunion is overshadowed by worsening weather and an eerie premonition from his youngest cousin-not to mention their parents' feud over the inheritance. Battler doesn't hold much stock in dark omens, nor does he believe the tales of the witch rumored to have given his grandfather a fortune in gold...and who walks the halls of the mansion to this day... But when the eighteen family members and servants are trapped on the island by the raging typhoon, the grisly events that follow leave Battler shaken to his core. Is one of his relatives desperate enough to kill for the family fortune? Or is this the work of the Golden Witch?

    This manga is very good for people who like gore and mystery. The book is very large with multiple episodes and multiple parts so try not to get mixed up.

    The story is about the Ushiromiya family whose partiarch, Kinzo

    The story is about the Ushiromiya family whose partiarch, Kinzo Ushiromiya is on his death bed. The parents greedily discuss the inheritance of Kinzo’s ten tons of gold. But their greedy plans are halted when a witch named Beatrice comes to reclaim the gold, along with some interest, their lives. Beatrice will lose all rights to the gold if they can solve the gruesome epitaph under her portrait. As the body count dwindles, the more the remaining question each other. Are the murders really being done by a witch or is it just an illusion? Or is there a greedy killer among them just in it for the gold?
    This has to be my favourite manga and murder mystery of all time. The story is smart and well thought out and the art is amazing 10/10 book. I highly recommend.

    If you enjoyed the "Higurashi: When They Cry" seriesso

    If you enjoyed the "Higurashi: When They Cry" seriesso far, then this will certainly be another book to enjoy. It has a mystery-like and sci-fi undertone while captivating you within the characters' suspense about the unique plotline. The size of the book itself is also worth noting, since most manga issues tend to be particularly short(in my opinion). Although, be mindful of the gore and craziness that ensues throughout the series.
