The Borrowed

by Chan Ho-Kei

An absorbing look at the Hong Kong police from 2013 to 1967. Yes, that's right the earliest action chronologically takes place last! This method works amazingly well - nearly as well as the brain of Inspector Kwan. Should appeal to lovers of Sherlock Holmes or Ed McBain, plus those interested in a thoughtful view of Hong Kong's recent history.


'The police force today is full of timid fellows who only care about their careers. God knows what'll happen when they're in charge, .... When that time comes, brave idiots like you will be in for a lot of trouble ...'
Translated by Jeremy Tiang
