Ten years after the spectacular “Death note murder series” mysterious cyber terrorist attacks happen all over the world. The killers seem to be in possession of the supernatural death notes: every person whose name is written in this notebook shall die. A deadly cat-and-mouse game begins between murderous vigilantes and the police – packed with suspense until the end.
