  • Mystery Fiction "The Borrowed"


    Mystery Fiction “The Borrowed” ranked top in Japan’s Honkaku Mystery Best 10 (Foreign Sections) 2017 and Shūkan Bunshun Mystery Best 10 (Foreign Sections) 2017. The book is one of the few Chinese mystery fiction in the international market, translated into English, French, German, Italian, and Japanese. Renowned film director Wong Kar Wai also plans to  adapt the fiction in his future production.


    “The Borrowed traces the past and sheds light on the future of Hong Kong through mystery stories. It is not only a top-notch detective story of the orthodox school but also a genius work of the social school, a subgenre of detective fiction.”  Makoto Tamada, critic of mystery fiction

    “The investigation of each mystery is not at all conventional… The ending makes readers want to reread from page one.”

    “Very sound logic, unexpected plots… Even more well-grounded in logic and more brilliant than some of the detective fiction classics from overseas.” Douban Read
