Haaa. Finished reading to the latest chapter and I'm stuck on a cliff again. Amazing. This is only the second time I've binged an original like this. This is a hidden gem and I'm surprised and pissed at how underpopular it is. What are you waiting for? Go start reading. In case you weren't convinced here's the review: Writing- 5/5 Reads like a published novel. Nothing to say here. It is a bit fast paced at parts and less detailed than your usual case-solving style novel. Written very well nonetheless. Very easy to imagine and everything is described well even with fewer details. Plot- 5/5 Amazing so far. I usually end up predicting a lot of the plot and planting my flags, but here I had a clue in the middle of a few arcs maybe at most. Unpredictable plots but not annoyingly convoluted. Characters- 6/5 THIS IS WHAT DID IT FOR ME. Among the best characterisation I've seen on this site. Not just the main characters, but all of them. The three things I loved the most in this novel were 1. Levi 2. Sam 3. The interactions between Levi and Sam Levi's monologues, dialogues, behaviour are all very fun to read. The romance(?) is really well done. Exactly the kind of romance I like. If I had to give a comparision, it's somewhat similar to Hachiman and Yukino in Oregairu or Jo Minjoon and Kaya Lotus in God of Cooking. If you are sick of those CEO romance novels then give this unique take a read. Overall, must read. I've read 100s of originals on this sight and this is in my top 2 favourites. Suggestions for the author: There's nothing much I can say here. 1. In the starting few chapters there are some spelling/ grammar errors.(Very few of them hardly noticeable) Some places have comma instead of period. One place had slick blood instead of slick blonde. Couple places have wrong tense, wrong gender. I think you can fix it if you read it once :) 2. For time skips within a chapter, you can leave a gap of few more lines or draw a line with stars ******************************************************** like this. It helps keep the imagination steady. Like seriously...there's no major flaws in the novels and I can only pick on things like this :p Please keep up the good work.


A brilliant and fascinating realistic fiction novel. The book is very captivating as it full of intrigues well planned out by the author. I am a fan of cultivation novels but I must say that when I found out about this book, I continued to read. It was smooth and entertaining as I was immersed in a world full of suspense. The book is amazing and there is no error which makes the book deeply interesting to read. So glad I got the link to this novel. Also, writer's english is awesome and excellent. Am a writer myself but I have to say that I would have to learn english from this writer. Smooth flows and good use of words. Good job author. I really appreciate your passion for this work. Don't stop writing and please give more updates. 👍 💯 ♥


Binged this original after it came out from my recommendations list and I was caught - hook, line and sinker, for its seriously awesome plot. Finally, a novel where I can spend my passes (lol) Writing - I know the author isn't a professional, but this book feels like it was written by a pro. The quality of the writing is beyond any webnovel I've read, or maybe I'm a bit biased in saying that, because I'm a sucker for Sherlock-inspired works (I get your references haha I'm proud of myself) Stability - it's really steady! Keep it up! Development - as I said, the plot is seriously awesome. But what's more amazing is how the story progressed as more and more pieces fit into its puzzle. And sht, I had several moments too that got me at the edge of my seat (or bed) and I'm like "noooo..... oh-ok *sigh*" wew Characters - SS-tier writing and descriptions again! I vibe so much with Levi and Sam! I came here for them, and will stay here for them 😍 Background - the setting is also intricate, and I'm sure author has put a lot of effort into making it vivid for us. What a brain. READ THIS! INCREDIBLE! 👏


Intense, deep, and mysteriously written. I've seen the effort of the writer to accomplish what the book trying to say. In fact, I've feel shame to call myself an author for taking quite long to found out how amazing this book is written. If you're a fan of Agatha Christie's mystery, go ahead and read this. If you're a fan of Young Detective Kindaichi, Conan, or Dan Detective School, you must read this. If you're a fan of mystery novel, an especially good one, READ THIS!!!


Honestly whenever I review a original on this site/app I usually start with stating how rare it is for me to read a original and let alone leave a review on one, and then go on a long rant about how most originals here are not good etc. Today I'll skip that to say that is truly one of the few great original novels on this site. I was recently craving some detective novels after I watched The Mentalist for the 4th time (only till the red john) So instead of buying a popular printed book I decided to find one on Novelupdateș. Com. There were few Crazy Detective Netherworld investigator Genius detective Super detective on a fictional world But I didn't like the protagonist's of the first two. I wanted someone more like Sherlock Holmes or Patrick Jane from The Mentalist. The Genius detective is actually not bad And then there's Super Detective. This I actually read all the available chapters on machine translation. Definitely not a detective story, well atleast not how you'd expect but a good Marvel fanfiction. Although first few chapters are pretty bad. Anyway during that time I came across "100 Ways to Solve a Murder" Honestly if it was any other time I would not have clicked on it at all. Because of how rarely I read originals. But it came to me just at the right time. Like it was fate. I had very low expectations and Although the reviews here did give me some hope. And I have to say those reviews are not wrong. It is a very good story. the author does take some inspiration from Sherlock Holmes for his character but really almost all detective shows or books are in some aspects. Just keep reading it. At first it might seem slow Or just some romance novel (even tho romance isn't bad either) I'm not a professional critique so I don't think I'll be able to give detail reviews why I like it. But I'll just say what I know First the Grammar, which is very good, at least to me. I have a hard time immersing myself in originals here because of how many I find awkward sentences or wrong grammars. Here I had no problem at all. Second the characters. honestly if I hadn't read the story at all and someone described the male protagonists to me I'd probably wouldn't read the story at all. But here it fits and it works. I like the main characters. I rarely or even never read romance stories. But when I read only first chapters of the books which comes off more as a romance than a detective book I still read on. Mostly because of the characters. If I have too say, it is both a detective novel and a romance novel. Writing Style and Storytelling : I don't how to distinguish between bad and good But from what I have read I realy liked the style and I like the storytelling and that's all that matters. Anyway I would recommend giving this a try to everyone. It is definitely worth reading. I recommend reading the first volume (about 70 chapters? Before a review)

Not bad. I've only read the first chapter but it captured my interest. If it's not late at night, I'll be reading more. The characters are good. I could easily deduce their personalities the first time I see them. I hope this will not fail my expectations. Thanks for writing!


The book is good, although it's not my liking as I'm used in reading cultivation novels...it kinda reminded me in my days when was watching series too much( Mentalist and Elementist). Keep the good work author.


Well-written and entertaining. I don’t often comme across a novel I like but when I do.... oh, boy. I’ve been reading it non-stop and can only recommend it.
