Here's Chuang Yi's synopsis:
Here's a not-quite equivalent version from Wikipedia:
Conan is able to locate Hades in the crowd and apprehends him before the bomb is detonated. He receives another antidote to the APTX 4869 from his parents and is able to return to Japan. The Detective Boys play in an abandoned warehouse when a small earthquake occurs. They hear an unknown person in the warehouse banging the code 252 on the walls, indicating they need help. Originally deducing someone got trapped by the earthquake, they discover that two kidnappers posing as construction workers. With the assistance of Okiya Subaru, they are able to apprehend the kidnappers and reveal the kidanappe to be Agasa. Later, a kid who is known to be an obsessive liar tells the Detective Boys his home has been invaded but is taken away by his parents. They decide to investigate to see if the boy is telling the truth. After concluding the boy is telling the truth, the invaders, who were posing as the boy's parents, corner the Detective Boys. Conan, having deduced the boy was telling the truth, had called the police to apprehend the criminals. A wealthy woman hires Kogoro to investigate threatening letters she received. While celebrating her birthday, a black out occurs and the Kogoro's employer is found dead.

Chuang Yi's synopsis:
Don't have the English version of the 史上最强之弟子兼一 #43 preview (but then, as I noted with volume 42, if you're reading the Chinese version, you don't really need it, do you? :D). Instead, providing volume 43's Battles 398-407 titles:
Spirit Of Disciple,
Screams Of The Heart,
The Grand Conclusion,
The Depths of The Heart,
Those Forced To Stand Up,
The Absolute Basics,
The Path Of Power and
Farewell To The Death God. (If you're paying attention, yes, they're the same titles I wrote under volume 42; miscopypasta'ed :P)
The Japanese Shijou Saikyou no Denshi Kenichi 43 streeted last May in Japan.
Next Chuang Yi release: 6 September 2011 (Tuesday)
