When Light Yagami finds a notebook giving him power over death, will he use it for good—or evil?

Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects--and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?

Light tests the boundaries of the Death Note's powers as L and the police begin to close in. Luckily Light's father is the head of the Japanese National Police Agency and leaves vital information about the case lying around the house. With access to his father's files, Light can keep one step ahead of the authorities. But who is the strange man following him, and how can Light guard against enemies whose names he doesn't know?

About the Series

Light Yagami, a brilliant yet bored high school student, stumbles upon the Death Note, a notebook with a terrifying power: write someone's name in its pages, and they die. Driven by his ideals of creating a perfect world, Light embarks on a path of judgment, eliminating criminals. But his actions attract the attention of L, a legendary detective determined to stop him.

As Light manipulates and outwits his pursuers, a thrilling game of cat and mouse unfolds. Morality blurs, alliances shift, and the line between justice and vengeance grows thin. Light, fueled by his god complex, faces not just L's brilliance but also the consequences of his actions – fear, isolation, and the growing darkness within him.

Can Light maintain his perfect world while L closes in? Will the weight of his murders crush him? Will anyone escape the deadly game set in motion by the Death Note? Dive into a psychological thriller where life and death hang by a pen stroke, and witness the consequences when power falls into the wrong hands.
