  • Introduction
A series of crimes apparently modelled after a suspense novel plot, bring together the three main characters in this story: hypnosis psychologist Xueqing, investigating officer Jianfeng, and writer of the novel, Dishen. While working with one of the female victims, Xueqing herself was kidnapped and almost became a victim. Jianfeng is determined to nab the perpetrator as he secretly holds feelings for Xueqing and worries for her safety. Dishen becomes a prime suspect since the crimes are related to his fiction work. He volunteers to help investigate, hoping to prove his innocence, while helping Xueqing get over her inner fear after she was attacked. Xueqing and Dishen’s relationship warms up and they begin dating. Meanwhile, a mysterious man called “shadow walker”, is taking criminals in his own hands. With violence he made them confess to their crimes and punished them accordingly. He uploads his acts online, obviously giving a warning to all law breakers that they will never escape scot-free. “Shadow walker” reminds Dishen of a dark secret in his heart. Seven years ago, he and some friends formed a group to carry out secret missions to uphold justice and even resorted to unlawful means to achieve their goals. They considered themselves dark crusaders of justice. After forcing a university professor to death, Dishen decided to disband this group and subsequently lost touch with those friends. Dishen secretly wonders if “shadow walker” could be their doing, and started investigating with Xueqing. As the case develops, Jianfeng finds more clues pointing themselves towards Dishen as the ultimate perpetrator… The three are inevitably drawn into the cases. As they get closer to the truth, it appears that they are also moving closer to their inner secrets. Unknown to them, the truth will ultimately destroy not only Dishen, but Xueqing as well…
