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.

    Tips To Ensure Your Big Day Is Perfect
     
    You are planning your big day. Tons of time and effort goes into this process and the end result had better be good. So how do you make that happen and still keep your sanity along the way? The answer is quite easy and that is to read along and we will provide some wedding planning tips that can really help anyone to make it to the big day.
     
    Do not forget to learn about how you will handle tax reporting for your business. Reporting taxes for a business is much more complicated than filing taxes for yourself. You might need to hire a tax accountant to sort out what you have to do in the first year that you are filing as a business, just to make sure that it is done correctly.
     
    If you are planning an outdoor wedding you will need to consider the possibility of bad weather. If you do not have a backup plan, this could ruin your wedding and inconvenience all of your guests who are attending. Always prepare for the worst on important occasions.
     
    When the wedding has ended, you will most likely receive gifts from the people who have attended. Make sure that during this time, you and your spouse are together so that you can both show the appreciation that is deserved. Thank everyone regardless of what type of present they give you.
     
    You should try to create a wedding that is extremely personal by having elements which encompass you, your fiance, and the relationship between you two. Think about your time together and find a theme which matches it.
     
    An outdoor wedding has its own natural beauty but you should still check on the place where your wedding will be held right before your wedding. Check to make sure that the grass has been mowed, leaves have been raked, and it is clear of debris. If you notice something that you do not like, make sure it is taken care of before your wedding day.
     
    For the woman who is about to get married, don't skimp on the dress. This is your day to shine, to look the most beautiful you have ever looked before, and to be decorated with unending compliments. So go buy that expensive dress you have always dreamed of wearing on your wedding day.
     
    Skip having guests throw confetti at your wedding as it makes a mess and isn't good for the environment, nor will you like picking it out of your hair. Instead, give your guests a noisemaker with the date of your wedding and your names on it to take home as an inexpensive keepsake.
     
    Make sure that you never plan your bachelor or bachelorette parties the day before the wedding. There may be a lot of drinking at these parties, and the last thing that you will want to do is ruin the day of your wedding because you are not fully functional. Have a calm day right before your wedding.
     
    It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
     
    Share your discounts on airline tickets with family and friends who will be attending your destination wedding. If you have Airmiles, see if you can help by purchasing tickets for your family with the reduction in cost thanks to those miles. Ask around with all attendees to see if they can pool their resources and get more discounts!
     
    When picking out your wedding ring, make sure to get one you know you are going to like years down the line. Many people pick a random ring, and later decide that they do not like it. Also, if you are going to get matching bands, make sure both of you like them.
     
    The time has come to plan your wedding. It is the biggest day of your life, and you're putting every drop of energy into the process. You just might lose your sanity along the way, right? Wrong! If you follow the tips we have provided, you can make it to your big day and keep your sanity intact. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
