The SpecimensMy old friend Xiaohan was put behind bars for opening the mail of others. His wife Heiti thought that he had died, which was why she didn't come to see him in jail.

A Nest of Nine BoxesFor dozens of years, the grandmother had been chiseling the wall and digging into the ground. She was looking for things that her husband may have hidden. What was behind her unusual behavior? On the eve of moving away from the old house for relocation, the grandson accompanied his grandmother to search for the last time. They heard the collapse of the earthen wall and the many sounds resounding from the past. Late Winter--Long-Running DiscontentXiaoman and Aisheng were neighbors. Their homes were near the rail-tracks. In the adult world, there were complex and ambiguous relationships among Xiaoman's uncle, Aisheng's elder sister, Miss Wen, a teacher at the elementary school, and the woman teacher at the normal school. The two children boarded the train, seeking to find out the answer to all their questions. However, Aishen was stabbed due to a fight on the train. Would they still be able to find out the truth? A Crispness in the AirIn a small water-borne town in turbulent war times, the boss of a salted meat shop had an unusual relationship with his adopted daughter Qiguan.

Afterwards, A'Cai left, a corpse was found by the lake, and a town police officer was found dead in the salted meat shop. Who was behind all this?
