The Raven Chaser
The Raven Chaser is the 13th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 18, 2009.
A man driving down a hillside road suddenly realizes that his car's brakes don't work. Traveling at a high speed, the Alfa romeo Brera crashes into a toll station. The man dies but leaves a mysterious dying message: "Tanabata kyo."
A mysterious Mahjong tile next to the body links this case to six other homicide cases in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Shizuoka, Nagano, and other places in Japan. Because of the Mahjong tiles left beside each victim, the police conclude that the same person or organization committed these large-scale murders. The police of prefectures across Japan unite to find the murderer.

After a police conference about this case, Conan discovers a police officer walking out of the building and entering a black Porsche. He concludes that a Black Organization member is disguised as a police officer and has infiltrated the meeting. Conan is left wondering which officer is the fake and what interest the Black Organization has in the case.
Conan corners Vermouth in the underground parking lot of a shopping mall and interrogates her. She says that the Black Organization needs a memory chip and has a new member, "Irish".
On the day of Tanabata, Conan employs the help of Heiji Hattori and tries to solve the serial murder case by following the dying message lead. He and Heiji find out that two years ago, there was a fire accident in a business hotel in Kyoto, and a young woman named Nanako Honjou died. The elevator could only hold seven, but eight people needed to escape. Nanako wasn't on the last elevator and couldn't escape. Conan tracks down her neighbor, Shun Sawamura, and asks him some questions.

Conan finds out that Nanako and her boyfriend, Kosuke Mizutani, often went star gazing together. Conan realizes that the crime scenes are ordered like the star constellation Ursa Major, making the last crime scene the Tohto Tower. The police also figure out the pattern of the crime scenes and leave for Tohto Tower.
On the way, Detective Sato and Takagi make a detour to Beika Woods after receiving a call from Professor Agasa. The Detective Boys find Matsumoto inside a small house in the woods.
