A SUNDAY TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE YEAR.
'Serial killers turn up all the time in crime fiction, but few are as patient or as devious as the murderer in Zhou Haohui's Death Notice. This extraordinary novel is the first in a trilogy, and it is already China's bestselling crime series to date' Sunday Times.
THE LAW IS WEAK
For nearly two decades an unsolved double homicide has haunted Sergeant Zheng Haoming of the Chengdu Police Department.
I OFFER REAL JUSTICE
Now it looks as if the long-dormant killer has resurfaced, taunting law enforcement with 'death notices' proclaiming their next victim and the date of 'execution'. Perhaps modern police techniques – criminal profiling, online surveillance, SWAT teams – can catch a killer who previously evaded justice? Or perhaps this killer is more than a match for the Chengdu Police Department.
ONE SENTENCE: DEATH
Death Notice is a Chinese crime-writing phenomenon, a high-octane, high-concept cat-and-mouse thriller that adds an exhilarating new gear to the police procedural.
