Summary
"A schoolgirl, Siu-Man, has committed suicide by leaping from her twenty-second floor window. Her older sister and guardian, Nga-Yee, refuses to believe there was no foul play. Nga-Yee contacts a hacker and cybersecurity expert-known only as N.-to investigate and what follows is a cat and mouse game through the city and its digital underground, where someone has been smearing Siu-Man's reputation. This is not the only hidden drama in the city of Hong Kong: Chan introduces us to a serial groper on mass transit; high school kids with their competing agendas and social performances; a Hong Kong digital company courting an American venture capitalist; and the Triads, market women and noodle shop proprietors who frequent N.'s neighborhood. In the end, these threads all come together to reveal who caused Siu-Man's death and why, and to ask, in a world that has increasingly forgotten the real people on the other end of online and offline firestorms, what the proper punishment is"--
