Chan Ho-Kei

The Borrowed

Where there is murder, there is humanity.
Hong Kong's greatest detective, Inspector Kwan, is dying. For the past fifty years he has been quietly solving crimes while the world changed around him. Now on his deathbed, his partner Detective Lok needs help with one final case.
Through the story of six different but interlocking murders, this bold and intricate crime novel spans five decades of love, honour, jealousy and revenge, in one of the world's most intriguing nations.

    One of those internal principles we should always have

    uchihahas quoted2 years ago
    you don’t solve cases by meekly following the rules. Sure, among the uniforms, obeying orders is an ironclad principle, but as officers our first duty is to protect civilians. If the rules cause an innocent citizen to get hurt or impede the course of justice, that’s ample reason to disregard them.’
