Each of the six houses is hiding a mummy, and each mummy is missing a body part. Owners of these houses are mysteriously killed one-by-one by the seventh Mummy.The murders, Hajime discovers, are related to an incident 27 yearsago where villagers burned a church, killing the priest and his seven daughters.
