About this item
Early 1990s China: Newly returned from the US, lawyer Hong Jun has just set up practice in a fledgling legal system when his first case walks through the door. 10 years ago a local beauty was killed on a state-owned farm in China's frozen northeast, and the police rushed to pin the crime on a likely culprit. With forensic evidence, a witness statement, and a confession in hand, it was an open and shut case—but was the right man put away for the crime? In his struggle to uncover the truth, Hong Jun ruffles more than a few feathers. As many race to cash in on China's glittering future, he is forced to challenge those who put personal ambition above the rule of law—and those who will do anything to hide the sins of the past. In the finest tradition of international crime fiction, Hanging Devils is a gripping novel inspired by real events.
