On a snowy day in the year 889, Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty had an epiphany: he was not immortal. His jade carver created the most beautiful jade burial suit in history, finishing just three weeks before the Han Emperor died. When the priceless two-thousand-year-old jade burial suit suddenly goes missing in modern Hong Kong, a brutal competition to find it ensues between rival Chinese, Burmese, and Japanese factions. As they battle for the priceless artifact, a psychotic killer with a Maori tattoo on his face surfaces leaving a trail of dismembered corpses strung together like traditional Burmese puppets. Detectives Ian Hamilton and Angela Cheung follow a trail of hacked bodies and terror through contemporary Hong Kong in their search for the killer.

Carl said as he reached into a crumpled, grease-stained paper bag and pulled
out a French fry.

you killed the giant Kappa? You can sell lots of shit like that online to
lame-oâ€™s.â€ Scott said.
â€œSelling virtual crap for real money, I heard about
it. â€˜The Manâ€™ Maniero comes up with a plan! Not bad!â€ Carl said.
â€œHow do you think Iâ€™ve been funding all that E we been
rollinâ€™ with, dude? Selling virtual weapons online is how!â€ Scott said as he
rummaged in the breast pocket of his plaid shirt. He removed a plastic medicine
bottle, and then wiped his Doritos stained fingers on his jeans.
â€œWhich, by the way, we should partake thereof. Letâ€™s
get mundo-level high and play some â€˜Quake IIIâ€™.â€
