A Crime NovelBook - 2016
A business tycoon is found dead in Shenzhen, China; he apparently died of a heart attack while swimming. The police have three suspects: the vice president of the company, who is in line to take over the dead man's position; his young widow, who stands to inherit a huge amount of wealth; and his arch business rival. But then one of the suspects is also found dead, and the police find a drawer full of death threats. The police hit a dead end until a young investigative reporter discovers a new suspect who is not on the police's radar. Apricot's Revenge uses a clever plot to address social problems in modern China and to remind readers of the horrible and chaotic years China once endured.
