Death Note 2 Confluence Author:Tsugumi Ohba FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. When high school student Light Yagami finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a Shinigami death god, he discovers that any person whose name is written in it dies, so Light decides to use the notebook to rid the world of evil.
Light Yagami has the Death Note of the shinigami Ryuk. Criminals around the world have started dying mysteriously, thanks to Light. Law enforcement agencies struggle to make sense of the apparently unconnected deaths. Light's father heads up a special unit in Japan, coordinating with "L" -- a quirky genius who's committed to catching "Kira" -- the name given to the unknown perpetrator of the killings.
The cat-and-mouse game between Light Yagami and L continues as Light crosses a line between using the death note to kill criminals and using it to remove anyone trying to stop him. The pace is still snappy and the indirect interaction between the two main characters is fascinating. Solid all-around.
