What's this?Acquired: Received a review copy from Simon & Schuster Canada.
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.
This is a very exciting volume. Things are building up to a vital showdown between Ando and Inukai. The Grasshoppers have become widespread throughout the city now and Ando has very few people he can trust left. Ando's life is in danger again as the enemy tries to take him out before Inukai's next public meeting with which he intends to take over the city. This assassin is the worst he has had to face yet.
As said, an exciting volume. The action is almost totally centred on Ando and his problems. Inukai is only shown briefly as the force behind the secret plot that the Grasshopper's are setting up with the upcoming meeting. There is the death of a recurring character. This was a fast read for me as the action was non-stop from the beginning. The end advertising pages let us know that the next volume will wrap up this story arc, which, of course, makes me eager to read the next volume. This will not be the end of the series though.
