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.

    If the rules cause an innocent citizen to get hurt, or stand in the way of justice, then we have more than sufficient reason to push aside these inflexible statutes.’
