Goodreads Synopsis:

Can Detective Conan crack the case…while trapped in a kid’s body?

Jimmy Kudo, the son of a world-renowned mystery writer, is a high school detective who has cracked the most baffling of cases. One day while on a date with his childhood friend Rachel Moore, Jimmy observes a pair of men in black involved in some shady business. The men capture Jimmy and give him a poisonous substance to rub out their witness. But instead of killing him, it turns him into a little kid! Jimmy takes on the pseudonym Conan Edogawa and continues to solve all the difficult cases that come his way. All the while, he's looking for the men in black and the mysterious organization they're with in order to find a cure for his miniature malady.

A blind woman hires Richard Moore to find the scarred man who once saved her life. But the unknown hero isn’t the only mysterious figure lurking around—there’s a serial killer on the prowl! Then the dashing jewel thief known as the Kaito Kid vows to crack a safe built by a legendary master of traps. But when Conan sees the Kid’s message, he suspects he may be dealing with an impostor…


In this volume, we get about four different cases.
One about a diver, which of course Conan leads to the killer. There's a brief moment where he threatens one of Conan's kid friends, but no one seems to take that seriously. Then one where a blind lady who wins the lottery tries to find a boy from her childhood who saved her—this is two mysteries in one, as one guy is her childhood hero, but another is a murderer the police are after. Though this leads to the next mystery, as one of the policemen is trying to find a killer who scarred him before the time is up on the case.
The last chapter is the start of a Kaito Kid copycat case, as a fake note from him was left. This should be fun, because I'm quite a fan of him. I'm glad I have the next one and get to see him again.
