Realizing that the police force will need some extra help with this difficult case, he decides to form an elite crime-busting detective team.

He reaches out to a young man who has recently returned from studying in Great Britain, Yu Gong Zi (Hu Yi Tian). Qiao Chu Sheng has learned that Yu Gong Zi has remarkable powers of deduction and a brilliant mind – and believes he can help crack this difficult case.

To round off the team, he enlists the help of Bai You Ning (Xiao Yan), a focused young female reporter for a daily newspaper. A free-thinking, independent young woman, she has a strong sense of justice – and pledges to help catch the killer.

Can the trio get to the bottom of the murder case in time to restore order – and bring the dastardly criminal to justice?

The first two episodes are engaging, so far. I like the Republican era film sets and the permed hairstyles of females in that era. It’s nice to hear the Shanghainese dialect being spoken. The two male leads are doing alright. Not sure about the female lead yet. We’ll see.


I watched this drama on YouTube, so you can easily access it if you are interested in investigative Detective dramas

Im at ep 18. I was pleasantly surprised by HYT in this one and so I stayed for the ride. So far so good. It’s continuing to deliver although you will see a pattern to how each episode is going to go (by this I mean a dead body comes up, they try to find clues, long monologue, cue foreigners) and you will eventually tire of it. Stick through it for the sake of the quality of the show.

The story states that HYT's character is from a powerful family. I'm more interested in that and I hope we find out more in the coming episodes.
