Announcement on side of Akadot Retail

Yuuto Lenix, a former DEA investigator was arrested by a false accusation of killing his own partner. The FBI agents gave him a special deal, to look for a particular criminal hiding in the same prison. By the time he was detained in the Schelger Prison, he got to meet his cellmate, Dick Burnford, who didn’t show signs of being kind and welcoming upon his arrival. Will he ever be in good terms with his inmates, especially to Dick?

Summary from DEADLOCK’s Mangaupdates page.

DEADLOCK was originally a 3 volume novel, with a manga currently on-going. No word on whether it is the novel or manga licensed, but I’m personally hoping it is the novel. Image above is the novel version of volume 1. DMI previously announced their print line being placed on hiatus, so who knows when this might come out.

The DEADLOCK manga is licensed. Still no release date, though. (source)
