More murder!

Case Closed, Vol. 8 - Gosho Aoyama

A couple enjoyable stories here. First Conan, Rachel and Richard are given a vacation by Doctor Agasa, but when they get there, they find it's not quite as free as they were led to believe. There's a mystery afoot and the first person to solve it gets the rest of their stay paid for.


But things get real serious real quick when someone is killed and the perpetrator seems to be targeting the other people who are part of the mystery tour. I like this one for Rachel, who gets in on the detective work this time.


And in the second full story we get a bride who's poisoned on her wedding day. This one drags a little bit, but the hook here is that it actually has a pretty emotional arc. I love it.
