An absurd tale of a self-righteous heist gone horribly wrong, filled with masterful suspense

There was one thing that Chen Sheng knew for certain—the only person who could help him was Zhang Guoliang. As his former boss, Chen Sheng would simply ask him to enter the house of a businessman who owed him money and request the full sum. It was not extortion, it was not a robbery, it was just debt-collection. At least that's what Chen Sheng told himself until he opened the Rezhou Informer the very morning after the plan's execution. The front page of the paper told a different story, and there was no one else Chen Sheng could call on now.
