99 Ways To Die
In Taipei, Taiwan, the kidnapping of a Mainlander billionaire throws national media into a tizzy - not least because of the famous victimâ€™s vitriolic anti-immigration politics.
Jing-nan has known Peggy Lee, a bullying frenemy who runs her familyâ€™s huge corporation, since high school. Peggyâ€™s father has been kidnapped, and the ransom the kidnappers are demanding is not money but IP: a high-tech memory chip that they want to sell in China.
Jing-nan feels sorry for Peggy until she starts blackmailing him into helping out. Peggy is worried the kidnappersâ€™ deadline will pass before the police are able to track down the chip. But when the reluctant Jing-nan tries to help, he finds himself deeper and deeper in trouble with some very unsavoury characters - the most unsavoury of whom might be the victim himself.
