    Summary

    "For Izaya, the truest expression of his humanity is in drawing together the fragments of information scattered like clues through the data link and the offhand speech of witnesses or suspects alike, of weaving a tapestry of understanding from the threads of seeming meaninglessness that surround every living organism in the city." Izaya is the best investigator at the detective firm he works for, but when he gets assigned a new partner, he finds questions of humanity taking the lead in his attention.

    Summary

    ‘Can you?’ Shizuo's arms are trembling with the fatigue of restraint, and Izaya might never be graced with such humanity again. ‘Can you...take it. Izaya. Tell me you can take it.’

    For all of Shizuo’s honest violence, Izaya is pulled towards him for what he can see beyond that— Shizuo is so simply and painfully but a man. It's what makes him the fiend he is, and so Izaya leans forward, perilously close, looks into Shizuo’s eyes. ‘Can you?’

    Summary

    “Attached to your neck is a collar that will inject a poison into your jugular vein two days from now. Forcibly removing the device will also trigger the poison. Somewhere on this island is the antidote.”

    His hands reached up to his neck and he felt the cool metal of the collar.

    “Live or die. Make your choice.”

    Summary

    The first gig Dorothea helps Sylvain land is an extended stunt cameo in a stoner flick, a chance to commit to self-parody, playing a washed-up child star turned drug dealer. The wardrobe department outfits him in sunglasses and Hawaiian shirts. He grows some scruff and behaves like an acerbic dirtbag for two weeks. “Pitch-perfect casting,” writes the Tribune. Says Entertainment Weekly: “A familiar face in a nearly unrecognizable performance, Gautier looks like he’s having so much fun being loathsome.”

    -

    Ex-child actor Sylvain Jose Gautier makes a professional and romantic comeback.
