Bizarre clouds billowed by in the sky, as if in a hurry.

During an anti-drug operation in the city of Gongzhou three years ago, a chain explosion had gone off on site due to a mis-judgement made by the Commander-in-Chief Jiang Ting, and caused the anti-drug detachment team to suffer great casualties as a result. Three years now, Jiang Ting, who was supposed to have already been killed in the line of duty with not even a body left to bury—miraculously woke up from a coma.

His heroic soul had never been at peace. He returned from Hell back to the living, to give everything he had to bring the bloody and bizarre truth back to light.

Brilliant writing, plot is intricate and pacing is excellent, increasing heatedly at the end for an explosive (lol) finale! Super intense cop drama focused on crime solving, although all crimes the cast happen to investigate point towards a major international drug kingpin with unexpectedly deep ties to the ML... Both MC and ML are very smart and determined (and tall, rip).

Extremely well-written and well-researched; a fascinating web of everyone both in the criminal world, and in police departments across the country, good characterization and a cast of many well... more>> developed characters. Female characters do not take the back seat, are as complex as other characters, and play important roles in the unraveling of the plot.

We dig into the ML's past to unravel the real story. The cases are intricately and inextricably linked, from the first few paragraphs of the novel to the end. The continuity and tightness of the plot is phenomenal.

This story digs into the themes of control, isolation, (medically defined) psychopathy, orphaning, the damage caused by narcotics, crime, corruption, etc. All of the cases and scenarios are extremely detailed and well-planned. All the characters are deep, and as we continue to unravel the story, HS reveals the different histories and motivations masterfully.

In short, I highly recommend this novel. I hope the rest of it gets translated soon, as this really is a gem in the world of danmei.

Side note: I read the raws for this one, so this is largely based on the raws. I did look at the translation by BBTL, and it seems to be pretty good. The MTL version reads a little awkwardly.

Additionally, I will note that the R18 scenes of this novel are enjoyable, although a bit jarring in their supposed context, due to pacing and style. I would recommend treating the censored version as the full novel, and throwing in the R18 as extras. <<less

Totally recommend it. The cases are well-thought out, the twists are unexpected, and it gets unexpectedly hilarious at points where it should be serious.

Especially Yan Xie (the gong) 's mother Zeng Cuicui.

"When your son was 18, I felt that him marrying a princess was enough and to spare. When he was 25, I felt that if he just found a girl from a good home he could more or less pass his days. Come thirty, my pathetic requirements have already fallen to female, alive, and younger than me."

Mother Yan then took out a white paper from her bag, slamming it down before Father Yan with a bitter and hateful air. "Right now? I've even begun to self-study "The Problems of Gay Marriage"! What else can I ask for! You tell me, besides supporting him with a gold-plated shovel, what else can I do?!"

THIS IS A GREAT NOVEL. A MUST READ.... sorry I lost there.

the cases are very well-thought, intriguing, and connected to one another! this kind of plot device should be more appreciated. also, the plot twists are so amazing, I almost got misled. but eh, as prolific mystery lover, some things just can't fool me :p

thing that I notice much is the pace. the pace is good, not too fast, but not too slow so readers just want to read more and more. and indulge in this novel, not able to... more>> stop. the jokes are also fresh, lightening some heavy and depressing scenes. yeah... this one also has many knives, aiming toward your heart. Captain Jiang, you are just.... *sobs*

i really feel grateful to the author for making a gong as bright as Yan Xie, to complement the ice queen (?) Captain Jiang Ting. they're really a pair matched by heaven. ofc, at first it's not like that, but after several life-death situations, they really become a pair that understand each other, able to guess other's mind just by glancing or deducing the actions. you may think, because the shou woke up after a long coma so he was weak af. nope, nope at all. he still could do crazy shits, not to mention he's smart and tend to challenge death. or thinking maybe the gong was just all muscles with no brain. still nope. he was smart in his own way, added to his perfectly healthy and strong body. if not, how can he find out Jiang's intentions? in short, they're a perfect example of power couple, a great tag indeed.

not to forget, there's still smut. me like, me approve (◡‿◡✿) <<less

It's more police and crime than actual BL action so far. The author must have researched a lot for this novel. I think the shou is helping the gong solve crime without him knowing? ๏_๏

It's amazing that the translator was able to translate this!

It's a crime-solving story, with a super smart, brilliant, ice-cold beauty x also smart annoying rich as*hole but kinda competent cop.

I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. The MC and ML both are interesting characters whose chemistry is believable and entertaining. It's a slow burn for sure: ML and MC only kind of get it on at the halfway mark of the story. It's much more a detective novel, with the MC and ML solving a series of cases together (which all end up being tied together in the... more>> ending lol).

My favorite part is actually the epilogue haha


They get married! It's a happy ending, surrounded by friends and family. I definitely thought Jiang Ting wasn't gonna make it at several points in the story, but he f*cking made to the end and gets his happy ending with a hot ass boyfriend. *Sobs*

This story is actually fantastic? I love the two mains. Their personalities are very contrasting yet harmonious. The flow and pacing of the plot is great too.

You can tell the author did a lot of research for this novel. I also suspect they might have studied advanced chemistry or undertook pharmacology as they understand pharmacokinetics and effects on neuromodulators.

Sometimes I feel that MC is quite OP and things fall into place easily, but hey, still digging it ;)
