Murder the Dream Guy


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Deemed hopeless by her family and that she was better off married when her fourth novel continued to be a flop, aspiring author Xiang Wan begins to doubt herself. While feeling conflicted about continuing her dream as an author, things take an unexpected turn when a dazzling guy appears before her and takes her to the police station.

“What? I’m the primary suspect in a murder case?”

A murder has taken place and the details are eerily similar to the details of her latest novel. The dazzling guy turns out to be a talented detective with a hidden identity who is assigned to investigate the case. From then on, her life turns topsy-turvy.

In the beginning, she seeks the detective’s protection by requesting to stay overnight at his place.

“Detective Bai, is it not the duty of the police to protect the witness when her life is in extreme danger?”

She ends up staying at his house overnight because of various reasons, such as—

Scenario 1:
Xiang Wan: “Detective Bai, you have no right to detain me…”

Detective Bai: “I remember you’re the one who requested to stay at my house?”

Scenario 2:
Xiang Wan: “There’s no need for that. Detective Bai, I can return…”

Detective Bai: “You’ve not cleared of suspicion yet. If something happens, at least you’ll have an alibi.”

Scenario 3:
Xiang Wan: “Why did you bring me to your house again?”

Detective Bai: “You haven’t released a new chapter today!” he said, enunciating each syllable, “I want to read your latest chapter before telling you of our latest investigations.”

Story 4.5/5, TL 4.5/5

It's been some time since I've read a cnovel of this genre with good translations! I wish there were more crime/mystery novels translated! In the story, crime solving takes front center seat and is the main catalyst that spurs the MCs interactions/relationship. Plot is pretty thrilling and suspenseful with many twists and turns.

Similar to Ding Mo's 'When he comes, close your eyes, ' the series of criminal activities are not standalone cases but seems to be intrinsically interlinked with the MC.

I like the odd pair-up of an... more>> over imaginative, budding e-Novelist (FL) and the perceptive Detective (ML). This unusual combo made solving crimes take on a unique angle with slightly unorthodox means. No annoying side characters too. Which is a major plus. I hope I didn't jinx this. The ML makes me swoon, he is definitely the tsundere type, which is right up my alley. I have a feeling the romance will be a slow burn.

I hope as the story progress, it will gradually take on a darker tone and amp up on the mystery and thrill! <<less

This novel is quite intriguing. Despite it's slow pace and non existent 'active' romance, this novel grasped my attention. To the point that I wait for updates. It has its own kind of charm. The crime scenes are described quite literally but not in manner that make them vulgar or creepy. The romance is like an underlying current. Which is there but not tangible. You can feel it but not access it, Just like the murders described in this novel. There is always this mystery going around. All the cases... more>> seems to be different pearls of same necklace. As if we could string them up, then we would know, “who is the master mind behind all of this". These characters are well defined. They have life of their own. They stand there with all their goodness or faults. They are not forced up or made to be overly impossible godly existence. They interact and behave in normal society's mannerisms, not at all like some superheroes. And last but not least all of those cases are interesting. They are horrible yet you want to follow them. Quite addictive you can say. Sometimes you as a reader can also relate to the readers those are mentioned in novel by our author. You do want to dwell on those cases, rack your mind up for possibilities but end up getting surprised by the follow of events penned by author. Our author is just as playful and mysterious as the mastermind behind all these incidents. In summary you won't Miss out much by utilising your precious time to follow this novel. It's worth it <<less

This story is a hoot. Out of all the stories I'm reading right now, this is the one I most look forward to updates on. The protag is easy to relate to, and the side characters are memorable and fun.

I wonder why this is not popular yet! There's comedy and mystery plus romance. I have to say that I totally did not expect to laugh when reading this novel, where's the comedy tag! I would say that the it's slightly creepy, not scary or anything but it occasionally gives me the creeps like those unknown phone calls in crime dramas lol. I suspect the novel is based on multiple crimes all connected to a big one targeting the FL. Looking at the amount of chapters (which is rare for... more>> crime novels, I think they are usually less than 200 chapters), I hope the suspense and comedy remains. <<less

Awesome story. Realistic plot and characters. The romance so far is quite slow and I’m not greatly impressed with the ML in that department. I’m enjoying this immensely
