Case File Compendium: Bing An Ben Novel Vol. 01
Also known as BAB, the newest Chinese danmei/Boys’ Love novel series from the blockbuster author of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun!
A modern tale with a sci-fi edge: an elite young man with a dark side develops a deep, aggressive relationship with his former doctor.
Wealthy and handsome, yet mentally unstable—He Yu has returned home from overseas with one goal in mind: to win the heart of Xie Xue, the girl of his dreams. However, in his time away, he has nursed more than unrequited feelings. He must confront his long-held grudge against Xie Xue’s overprotective brother, Xie Qingcheng, who doesn’t think He Yu capable of love.
But history is not easily rewritten. As He Yu’s former doctor, Xie Qingcheng is the only person in the world who truly understands He Yu’s volatile mental illness. When the two are involved in an explosive incident that exposes a dark secret, Xie Qingcheng’s suspicions about He Yu are confirmed. Now, He Yu must confront his own demons…including his dark obsession with Xie Qingcheng.
This urban fantasy from China built around the desire between two men (danmei) is the newest novel series by the author of the hit The Husky and His White Cat Shizun. The Seven Seas English-language edition will include exclusive, all-new covers and interior illustrations.
