1705 The Ironic Light Orchestra is the eleventh volume of the Baccano! light novel series, and the first entry of the 1700s arcs.
The year 1705, in a town on the coast of Italy. All 15-year-old Huey Laforet feels towards his life is tedium and despair, and he dreams of the day when he can destroy the world he despises. Meanwhile, there are rumors of a strange sting of murders performed by a figure in a white mask-and whoever witnesses the killing is doomed to be the next target. As the serial killer shakes the town of Lotto Valentino, Huey's life is about to change, too...
