Livewire is the ninth volume of Cause of Death. The volume's main antagonist is the Livewire killer, who kills his victims via electrocution, while also including a secondary antagonist, interim captain Lieutenant Charles Anders. The volume concurrently focuses on other storylines, such as the conflict within the SFPD; the temporary leave of Amy Chen's character and the introduction of main character Jeremy Redbird (chapter 2 and 3); Natara's engagement with District Attorney Oscar Santos (interlude); and the return of the cartels after a five-volume hiatus (chapters 5 and 6). The volume is also the first to include an interlude.
