Their relentless pursuit of justice uncovers shocking truths, leading them to confront their own demons and push the boundaries of their courage.

The dangerous network of illegal immigrants and human smuggling reveals a conspiracy that reaches the highest echelons of power. As they traverse treacherous landscapes, both geographical and moral, the stakes skyrocket, threatening not only their lives but also the stability of nations.

The Runner propels readers into the heart-pounding world of international espionage. When Li Yan stumbles upon a high-stakes spy operation, he becomes an unwitting pawn in a dangerous game. With his life hanging by a thread, he must outmaneuver ruthless adversaries, using his wits and skills to navigate a labyrinth of deception. As tensions escalate, Li Yan's loyalty and resilience are put to the ultimate test.

Finally, in Chinese Whispers, the series reaches its climactic conclusion.
