Skinner’s Box (Fang Mu (Eastern Crimes))

Skinner’s Box (Fang Mu (Eastern Crimes))

Product Description
A perfect mix between Chinese versions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Silence of the Lambs. Why did he, who murdered his girlfriend's head teacher on Teacher's Day with his own hands, suddenly break out of prison on the same day that Fang Mu was to testify in court to spare him from the death penalty? Why does he, who has taken so many orphans under his wing to care for personally, frequently stare with sad, hollow eyes at a portrait of a deceased child? Deep within an underground labyrinth, a man is found electrocuted to death; high on the top shelf of a department store's stuffed animal display wall, a giant teddy bear suddenly begins to drip blood; a man's corpse is discovered, castrated, and with his arms around a sex doll whose clothing is completely intact…. Are they all part of a group of injured guinea pigs? Or are they themselves cruel, perverted killers? Is this an age-old theater, a purging remedy for redemption, or some sort of fiendish ritual? Fang Mu is once again pulled into a vortex of massacre. Does he allow this to happen out of a sense of duty? Or is there something else inside him, guiding him against his will? Through all his trials and tribulations, will Fang Mu comply with Teacher Qiao's final wish that he become a police officer, or will he return to the life of an ordinary citizen and never look back? This is a story about growing up. This is a story of self-redemption. This is a story that at times will leave you burning with anger, recoiling from fear, warming with hope, or brimming with sorrow. If you have read the first book in the series, Profiler, then Skinner's Box will lead you to discover a whole new side to Lei Mi's writing. Fang Mu is still Fang Mu, and the cases are still just as bewildering and complex. But this is an entirely different interpretation of the ugliness and evil of human nature and the criminal mind caught wandering back and forth between heaven and hell. Editorial Review ------------------------ Author Lei Mi has been called the king of the Chinese crime novel. Employed at China Criminal Police University as a teacher of criminal psychology, he has a clear insight into all sorts of criminal behavior. Early in 2007, with the publishing of the Psychological Criminals series (which, along with the prequel The Seven Readers, has been called the Fang Mu series by readers), this book's performance was no more than mediocre at first in a Chinese marketplace that had grown accustomed to European and American crime novels. Still, a small number of readers became deeply fascinated by it. Before they were formally published, the second book, Skinner's Box, and the third book, Blade of Silence, had already gained 600,000 fans by word of mouth alone. By December 2012, City Lights, the fourth book in the Psychological Criminals series, was hot off the press and had climbed straight to fifth place in Amazon China's new release rankings list in the suspense category. In this series of novels, you will read about an unprecedented new master sleuth. Using a deft pen planted firmly in the foundations of realism, a heavy flavor of the aesthetics of crime, trains of thought and reasoning that are totally different from what ordinary people might be used to, and reflections on ethics that are truly thought-provoking, the author has provided readers with a new perspective from which to understand a realistic version of China society.

    Simple Tips To Help You Get The Weight Off
    It does not matter how much weight you need to lose. The fundamentals remain the same - you need to use up more calories than you consume. Between diet and exercise, regular weight loss can be easily achieved and here are some helpful ideas to get you started in the right direction. That is the scales moving downwards.
    Don't take too much time in between meals. Instead, eat more frequently, but don't eat more than 3/4 full per meal. Doing this can help you to avoid overeating, and control your portions. Also, eating more frequently can lead to healthier eating habits. For example, chewing thoroughly instead of swallowing it down, will help you to actually enjoy your meals.
    Steaming foods that you would ordinarily bake or fry is a great way to decrease the fat content in your food. Steaming food will cook it without adding butter or any other unhealthy supplement. Choose fresh foods with lots of flavor,that way steaming or grilling can be a great way to cook your meals without adding fat.
    A great way to lose weight is to prepare your meals the night before. When you prepare your meals the night before, you won't have to rush to get to work or wherever you're going and you'll always guarantee yourself to have something healthy to eat when you're hungry.
    A helpful tip to lose weight is to learn how to cook your own meals. If you don't know how to cook, you're more likely to resort to eating fast food and you're not likely to get proper nutrition. Learning to cook basic meals for yourself is very important.
    It's a well known fact that drinking water can help you shed pounds. Have you also heard that drinking chilled water causes your metabolic rate to increase? When you drink a glass of ice water, your body is forced to raise your body's temperature, which also raises your metabolism.
    Having a workout partner can help remaining committed on your weight-loss plan easier. A person who shares similar weight loss goals with exercise and diet can be a very strong motivational tool. Together, you will find it easier to stick with the program during times when you might otherwise give up.
    A good way to help you lose weight is to avoid getting coffee and related drinks at cafes. Most of us aren't aware of it, but these drinks tend to be loaded with sugar and fat. Try brewing your own coffee instead. You'll have control over what goes into it.
    When trying to achieve weight loss, it is important that you do not focus too much on the number on the scale. Instead, you should attempt to achieve a healthy body. It can sound contradictory, but just focusing on the health to start with can keep your thoughts positive. By over-focusing on weight loss, it is easy to become discouraged with the number on the scale, which will cause you to slide right back to your old habits. It's very common for the average person to fall off diets because they tried to lose weight in ways that are far too restrictive. Making gradual changes will help you lose weight.
    Try to cook at home as much as possible. Food from a restaurant often contains a lot of fat and salt. Also, restaurant portions are huge, which might tempt you to eat more than you really need. When you cook your own food, you can control exactly what goes into your meal, and you can control your portions.
    If setting a goal for yourself doesn't seem to be working, why not try joining a program like Weight Watchers? Not only do they have organized plans to keep you on track to losing weight, but you get the support of the other members to give you encouragement to keep going.
    Slow and steady weight loss is better and more sustainable than fad diets and a rapid decrease in numbers. A long-term change in attitude towards food and exercise is what is required for the pounds to come off and stay off. But remember that it can be done, and you will reach your goals with a little perseverance.
