This book is a testament to the efforts of one model Chinese official, Liang Yurun, to address corruption in one particular county of northeast China, Xiaxian County in Shanxi province. The book narrates case after case in which the common people had been victimized by corrupt officials, transforming what were initially fairly simple problems, which should have had simple solutions, into strange, menacing and often haunting situations, involving unbelievable suffering.
