This volume is a deviation from the usual set up and I really enjoyed it! We start with a confrontation between Loid and Desmond in which Loid does a lot of speaking and projecting onto Desmond. It’s brilliant as it’s clearly a tactic Loid is using to read Desmond emotionally and body language-wise, as well as watching to see how Damien reacts to his words. Loid rules.
Aside from that original discussion, we also get day-of-the-life snippets from other side characters in the series such as Bond, the adorable dog, and Franky, Loid’s co-worker at the agency. Yor finally gets a new assignment from her agency, keeping an eye on a woman and her child as they escape the country on a boat. Of course, the plot leads to Loid and Anya coming as well, despite them not knowing Yor’s true identity. She’s being sent for work and they win a trip, so time for a family vacation! The feeling at the end of the volume is ominous, so who knows where this is going.
All I know is that if ANYTHING ever happens to Anya, I will start cracking skulls.
