From Barnes & Noble
The unexplained disappearance of his detective older brother haunts tenth-grader Ayumu, but he must confront more urgent problems, too. He has been just identified as the prime suspect in a murder at his school. To clear his name, this bright introvert must probe into the stealthy dealings of the cursed youngsters known as the Blade Children. A mystery manga worth watching.

    One Case At a Time.

    If you love detective stories, anime, or mangas then Spiral, Vol. 1: The Bonds of Reasoning is the book for you. The mysteries are very original and it always very exciting when the case is solved and the mystery's sercedts are revealed.

    I especially like this book becuase of the wonderful characters. They are so fun and realistic.

    Even if your not into mangas or anime your probably still like Spiral since it a great detective story. Or if your just starting to read mangas this would be a great story to start with.

    The manga behind the greatest one seaon anime!

    If you like mystery/action anime/manga both the Spiral anime and manga is HIGHLY recomenned. I saw this the other day, and was like 'OMG! They finally did the manga in English! I HAVE to get this!' This series is aimed mostly a teens like me who like to escape from reality and finding loopholes, but some adults might like it, too.
