Story

Story

An unpublished Hemingway manuscript holds the key to a hidden treasure

In the midst of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, there lies a small island country called Corcaca. A legend tells of an enormous treasure which is hidden somewhere within this island.
The legend begins with the great and famous writer, Ernest Hemingway, discovering this island treasure and then writing a manuscript about it. However, due to his mysterious and tragic suicide, this manuscript known as the HEMINGWAY PAPERS was never published.
The legend of the treasure lures Lupin to Corcaca in search of these lost riches. He soon discovers that a civil war is being staged between a regular army led by President Carlos and a private army of Consano, the underworld mafia.
As soon as Lupin enters into Corcaca he meets Maria, a bar owner, who seems to be hiding a secret.
Meanwhile, Jigen, a brilliant sharpshooter and longtime loyal friend of Lupin, becomes a bodyguard of Consano. Jigen finds himself embroiled in a feud with a man who once betrayed him.
Another friend of Lupins, who is a skillful Samurai named Goemon, is on this small island country of Corcaca in search of a mysterious box. Even with his mighty sword, this box is unlikely to be broken.
As the civil war intensifies, Marcese, who is known as the merchant of death, arrives on the island to deliver state of the art tanks to Consano. Accompanying him is his secretary Fujiko who is Lupins longtime partner. Fujiko is in Corcaca also in search of the hidden treasure.
The last man to appear on the island is a leader of Marceses mercenary soldiers called MASH. This is the man that Jigen has been waiting for to seek his revenge.
As the tension mounts and heats up between Carlos, Consano, and Marcese on this remote island, the big question is whether Lupin can finally find this elusive and valuable hidden treasure.
