Description:
The year is 2013, and Inspector Kwan, one of Hong Kong's greatest detectives, is dying. His friend and protege, Detective Lok, has come to Kwan's hospital bed. Together they must solve one last case - the murder of a local billionaire. What follows is a brilliantly constructed novel of six interconnected stories, each featuring a different murder case solved by Kwan and Lok over the last fifty years. Eventually, in the final story, we witness the case in which Lok, a rookie cop, met Kwan for the first time.

This is a clever, gripping and original book. It is the moving story of two men, told through the conventions of detective fiction, and set against the shifting landscape of Hong Kong, but it is so much more than the sum of its parts. The Borrowed shines as a sweeping, ambitious crime drama that offers startling insight into one of the most dazzling cities of the Far East.
