Product description

About the Author

Author Mi Lei has been called the king of the Chinese crime novel. Employed at China Criminal Police University as a teacher of criminal psychology, he has a clear insight into all sorts of criminal behavior. Early in 2007, with the publishing of the Psychological Criminals series (which, along with the prequel The Seven Readers, has been called the Fang Mu series by readers), this book's performance was no more than mediocre at first in a Chinese marketplace that had grown accustomed to European and American crime novels. Still, a small number of readers became deeply fascinated by it. Before they were formally published, the second book, Skinner's Box, and the third book, Blade of Silence, had already gained 600,000 fans by word of mouth alone. By December 2012, City Lights, the fourth book in the Psychological Criminals series, was hot off the press and had climbed straight to fifth place in Amazon China's new release rankings list in the suspense category. In this series of novels, you will read about an unprecedented new master sleuth. Fang Mu. He is sensitive, fragile, and deeply afraid of death, but has been blessed with innate skill and an intuition that allows him to solve crimes with almost miraculous proficiency. His instinctual process of elimination causes him to be drawn inexorably down into a cruel whirlpool of murder cases, and during a constant battle of wits with the killers, Fang Mu begins to discover that he has his own dark side, deep within his psyche. He seems to be no different from them; his blood flows with all sorts of insane but somehow superlative criminal thoughts. At the same time that he uncovers the identity of a killer, he also reveals his own indecisiveness and loss of self-control. Using a deft pen planted firmly in the foundations of realism, a heavy flavor of the aesthetics of crime, trains of thought and reasoning that are totally different from what ordinary people might be used to, and reflections on ethics that are truly thought-provoking, the author has provided readers with a new perspective from which to understand a realistic version of China society.
