It's a decent story. Rather by the book reincarnation, and the MC has a bit of personality. It just didn't hold my interest because I felt the story was too predictable. There is not anything besides that which is bad about this novel, but nothing particularly great about it either. If you like detective dramas, then this novel is probably your speed. I'm not big on detective dramas myself.

It's refreshing to not see another reincarnation wuxia/xianxia novel so there's that, and probably the main reason why I gave this novel... more>> a shot. It's a decent time waster, I would give it 7/10 stars. <<less

This novel is very underrated. A novel about crime solving using a slightly OP cheat system that gives him tools to assist crime solving. But the system is not infallible so the MC is often put in life or death situations which allows the reader to get really engrossed during the fights. The MC still often uses his own smarts and deductive abilities to solve crimes. The crimes themselves serve as mini arcs in the story, providing readers satisfaction when a crime is fully solved.

The characters in the story are... more>> pretty interesting, they are characterized very well and jump out of the page. The way the MC interacts with people is also hilarious but not in a parody sense. The novel has serious plot but with constant scattering of laugh out loud comedy. The interactions between MC and the female lead is also hilarious and enjoyable to read. <<less

The story started with a simple premise, a death-row inmate, a career gangster, following his execution, was 'reborn' into a cop with same name, in the same timeline. He adjusts to life being a cop, but using methods a gangster might use. Much like all other present-day-themed CN novels, this one also has a cheat-device, though in this case, the device is a 'quiet' one that basically is a taoism-based fortune-telling machine, that issues enigmatic riddles similar to 'daily horoscope' for the MC, and occasionally grants magical devices that would... more>> help the cop in solving crimes.

Sounds stupid, right? I thought so, too.

Despite the stupid premise, the truth is that a story with an MC who's a cop, and an investigator, at that, will hang on the cases he handles. Are they good or dumb? Do they make sense? Are they full of plot-holes?

The first case was flimsy, at best, but then the second case came on, and it got better. And then the third, and then the fourth, and it gets better, and better, and better. I won't say they're devoid of plot-holes, but they're not quite all that obvious. They're entertaining, and complicated enough to invoke the reader's imagination, but not so convoluted they are difficult to understand. By chapter 240, or so, I'm hooked. And hooking me is not easy. The cases strike that happy-medium, where it isn't quite Agatha Christie, but much cleverer than what most others pass as 'mysteries' in most novels.

If you like murder mysteries and such, you'll love this novel! If you're hoping for a vapid comedy, you may be disappointed.

And here's the one potential drawback of this novel: I am reading the English translation of this novel published by the international arm of Qidian. Much like all the other novels they translate, the work is done on-the-cheap. I find a lot of things, and including most of the jokes, in fact, are lost-in-translation. The actual translation work is quite good, but clearly done with an emphasis on speed, rather than a professional style. The translator used words like 'inculcate, ' which is SAT-level, but then he/she/they translated 'gurney' as 'pushcart.' The word gurney is indeed an American one, and in English the word is pram, but 'pushcart?' And yes, technically, a gurney is a form of pushcart, but it's so very, very specific kind of pushcart. Ugh! Instinct tells me that 'inculcate' came from Google Translate, since it would explain everything, but I may be wrong.

And that, unfortunately, is the one thing that's a little disappointing. This novel is full of specific terminologies on forensics, criminology, some law, weapons, etc., much like any other detective novels. These terminologies are translated by someone with an obviously limited vocabulary, who obviously doesn't always have the time to Google some words.

This is another 'hidden gem' in Qidian's library, so far. Professionally translated and edited, this may be a hit novel on print that people may actually pay for. I would. <<less

To tell the truth, I wasn't the least impressed.

Although, for a tug story, it could be a bit interesting, but as a 'police story', it is kind of lame.

I only reached until chapter 6, which is very little to give a more substantial review. I guess it will stay that way...

The main character is an chaotic evil character that gradually becomes chaotic good. A thug forever tho.

I personally hated how he broke so many police rules but it eventually got better and more bearable.

Pervert. But devoted to his love interest. People seemed to ship this pairing in its early stages.

... more>> FL is awesome. The girls in general were are awesome, especially considering this is a CN.

Again. Pervert. I personally really hate that trait. Only him though, and not the narrative, so I found it bearable if I skipped those parts. Those parts, however, are very, very, very plentiful.

I rather like his ‘system.’ A premonition for the day.

The police mysteries to solve and adventures are quite cool.

Its actually interesting and he sometimes gets things wrong- but does succeed in the end.

Warnings however- there seems to cliffs. Have not experienced them due to binging but I have heard laments in the comments section. <<less

Crazy Detective

A Story that started out with nonsense that is fun to read but not compelling. But after chapter 80+ it becomes super engaging.

As the story title points out, the MC is extremely crazy and hoodlum, but here's the thing he's actually calm and serious when figuring out a case. Overtime through the novel from chapter 1 to latest chapter you can visibly see that his action and his character mature. He's still crazy and uses force all the time but he is one of the more interesting main character that stayed true to his craziness.

Characters are interesting, story is actual mystery and detective work with the MC using his brain and system to his advantage. All the cases are amazing and the culprits of the cases are all... more>> using common sense.

There's a lot of women in this novel but I can tell that only the true female lead not the MC old flame llookalike is the one in his heart til the end. Her character is also amazing.

All in all not deserved of the 3 star, a good 4.3. Very entertaining and compelling. <<less

Really a 4, but I feel it's very underrated. MC acts his personality. Has funny moments, but the story itself isn't a joke. Worth jumping into. I didn't even know I liked this genre.

I'd pause on it before tomb murder arch, otherwise you'll get sick of it.
