A historical fantasy epic set in the universe of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun! Two war generals were once close… until dark circumstances tore them apart. What secrets will be revealed when they finally reunite?
The empire of Chonghua once produced two young generals fighting side by side. Mo Xi, reserved by nature, was known for his imperious manner and ruthless temper. His best friend and comrade Gu Mang was the exact opposite: as charming as he was smart, he was loved by his soldiers and the people. That is, until Gu Mang shocked the Empire by turning traitor to serve an enemy nation.
Years later, a savage Gu Mang has returned with a broken mind. The public is calling for his death, and no one should be more vengeful against him than Mo Xi. But as Mo Xi holds his hand, the question must be asked – what is the real relationship between the two? And what past secrets lie beneath Mo Xi’s icy exterior and Gu Mang’s tormented psyche?

Seven Seas describes the history of Case Records Compendium: Bing An Ben how:
In this modern sci-fi tale, an elite young man with a dark side develops a deep, aggressive relationship with his former doctor.
From the outside, everything seems to speak for He Yu: he is handsome, rich and clever. But behind his perfect facade he hides a dark secret – one that makes him a latent threat to those around him. After spending years abroad, he enrolls in a film school to pursue the girl of his dreams, Xie Xue…but that forces him to confront her overprotective older brother, the man He Yu hoped that he would never see him again.
Xie Qingcheng, an icy man with subdued emotions, was once He Yu’s doctor and is the only person who knows He Yu’s terrible secret. He Yu vows not to let his past with the man get in the way of his feelings for Xie Xue, but he soon finds himself caught up in a tangled web of intrigue and violence involving both of Xie’s siblings. As a sprawling conspiracy sucks in He Yu, he must face his own grudges and confront new truths — including his own feelings for Xie Qingcheng, which twist into a fixation far darker than what he has for the man’s sister feels.
