Shortlisted for the 2015 Kavalan Soji Shimada Mystery Award
Full virtual reality has come to the world of online gaming, and the mother of all MMORPGs, a game called H.A., is still sitting on the sidelines. Li Shih-Chuang, the game’s Executive Producer, has locked horns with a new production consultant hired from outside, Chu Cheng-Bi. The two decide to let the game settle their dispute: The winner becomes the new producer, and the loser leaves the company.
Li and Chu, together with their own teams, venture into the virtual world of H.A. to start up for a game of detectives and assassins on a global scale. The “assassin” and her two associates have to make targeted hits without being discovered, while the “detectives” must do everything they can to stay alive.
