Death Note, Volume 2

Author: Tsugumi Ohba
Series: Death Note #2
Rating: 4 / 5 stars
Verdict: Borrow

The tension is starting to ramp up!  L is starting to feel the pressure.  With the FBI keeping him under surveillance, Light hatches a plan to discover the names and reveal the faces of all the FBI agents in Japan in order to eliminate them as a potential problem.

Meanwhile, L continues to be only a few steps behind, and he refuses to give up the chase.

Throw into the mix someone with an FBI background with a personal interest in solving the case, and Light finds himself for the first time truly at a mad scramble in order to cover his tracks and keep his identity concealed.  His calm facade is starting to show a few cracks.

He is too close to the case and too cocky to ever admit defeat.  He sees himself as a God, and yet he is turning into a monster before our very eyes.  He is even giving up the pretense (at least in my eyes) of trying to rid the world of evil and only allow those he deems worthy of continuing the species - he has no issues adding anyone to the death book that stands in his way now.

The action and suspense are definitely heating up as the game of cat and mouse continues to circle around our two main characters.
