A Crime NovelBook - 2016
A business tycoon, Hu Guohao, is found dead in Shenzhen, China. The police have three suspects: Zhou, the vice president of the company who is in line to take over his position; Zhu, his young widow who stands to inherit a huge amount of wealth; and Hong, his arch business rival. Nie Feng, a young investigative reporter, discovers a new suspect who is not on the police's radar. Zhong Tao is the personal assistant of Hu, with a connection to Zhou and Hong: All three men were working on a farm in a remote area of China over 30 years ago and Zhong has been plotting his revenge ever since. Song Ying uses a clever plot to address social problems in modern China and to remind readers of the horrible and chaotic years China once endured. Ying is an award-winning author in China of both fiction and nonfiction.
