There's a serial killer loose in Los Angeles and the local authorities need help fast. For some reason the killer has been leaving a string of maddeningly arcane clues at each crime scene. Each of these clues, it seems, is an indecipherable roadmap to the next murder.

Onto the scene comes L, the mysterious super-sleuth. Despite his peculiar working habits-he's never shown his face in public, for example-he's the most decorated detective in the world and has never tackled a case he hasn't been able to crack.

But this time he needs help.

Enlisting the services of an FBI agent named Naomi Misora, L starts snooping around the City of Angels. It soon becomes apparent that the killing spree is a psychotic riddle designed to specifically engage L in a battle of wits. Stuck in the middle between killer and investigator, it's up to Misora to navigate both the dead bodies and the egos to solve the Los Angeles Murder Cases.

Being the Death Note fan that I am, I searched tirelessly for more Death Note after the anime ended. That included the live action movies, Death Note special and one shot. So you can imagine that I was pretty excited when I found out there was more Death Note out there in the form of ‘Another Note: LABB Murder Cases’. I was practically squealing (grunting if that makes me sound more manly) at the thought and immediately placed this on my plan to read list. Of course, no one told me this was a novel and not a manga so you can say that I read more

I am a huge fan of the Death Note anime series so I was hyped up when I heard about this novel. The story revolves around the Los Angeles BB Murder Cases (apparent by the title) which are briefly discussed in the original Death Note series when the character Naomi Misora is introduced into the story line. The only aspect you really learn of this case is that the detective L and the ex-FBI agent Naomi Misora worked together on the case.

Story: Let me first say that I'm glad that I am an L Lawliet fan because if I were one of those "all hail read more

After watching the anime, I wanted more about L. He was the best character and didn't deserve such an ending. He was my favorite character, yet we didn't learn much about him. So, I read this and I enjoyed it. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but the characters were very unique, one in particular, and the story had a natural vibe to it. It was easy to read and connect with the main character. The twist at the end was amazing and I love it when Mello would take you aside to explain things a bit better. It was an amazing read more

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Death Note, I still decided to give this novel a shot. And even though it was a tiny bit disappointing I'm still happy I read it.

When I picked it up I was expecting it to be more like the original series with a lot of mental sparring and what not, but instead it takes the straight mystery route and follows our main character Naomi as she tries to uncover the truth behind a string of murders in LA.

Story 8/10
The writer managed to cram everything in to only 1 volume, which I think is a shame as some length read more

Manga: Remote
A female police officer does the footwork for a reclusive and unusual genius detective, with their primary (or sole) method of communication being a cellphone. Aside from the similarity in setup, both are keen on 'fair play' mysteries -- you can indeed play along at home.

Manga: Zaregoto Series
Both novels are written by the same author (Nisioisin). They are also both murder mysteries.
