VIZ Media is building on the psychological suspense of the popular Death Note series with the release of Death Note: L, Change the World, a new novel featuring the master detective from the hit animated and manga series. In this updated storyline detective L's name has been placed in a Death Note. He has twenty-three days to bring a terrorist group to justice, or they will use a deadly new virus to change the world...by killing off most of humanity.
Death Note: L, Change the World offers a fitting finale to the Death Note saga and contains many events that did not take place in the film,” says Gonzalo Ferreyra, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for VIZ Media. “The author, who adopts the nom de plume ‘M’ in tribute to the eccentric detective, creates an intriguing alternate continuity that will intrigue fans of the anime and manga series as well as new readers. Any thoughts of a quiet hospice vanish as L sacrifices his life to save humanity. Edge of your seat suspense awaits readers in this gripping new novel!” Death Note: L, Change the World features the same format as the original Japanese printing with a hardcover and clear acetate jacket with metallic ink. The cover art is by Takeshi Obata, the artist for the manga series.
