Translated by Jeremy Tiang


Six interlocking stories.
One spellbinding novel.


The year is 2013, and Hong Kong's greatest detective is dying. For fifty years, Inspector Kwan quietly solved cases while the world changed around him. Now his partner Detective Lok has come to his deathbed for help with one final case.


Where there is murder, there is humanity. This bold and intricate crime novel spans five decades of love, honour, race, class, jealousy and revenge in one of the most intriguing nations in the world.


This is the story of a man who let justice shine in the space between black and white. This is the story of Hong Kong.
