[i]The area around Tseung Kwan O New Town, built on land reclaimed from Victoria Harbour, is sometimes called by the English name of 'Junk Bay'. The recent tower blocks and businesses dominate this flat area.
The industrial estate, a squat collection of light industrial units and administration centres, is overlooked in places by the nearby landfill. Were it not for the stone sign advertising the estate as a fine place to set up a business, it could be practically any industrial estate anywhere in the world.
A beige sedan cruises past the sign and into the labyrinth of roads in the heart of the estate. After a few wrong turns, the sedan pulls up on an access road on the outskirts of the estate. The ground is still wet from recent rain.
One side of the road is a chain-link fence, already overgrown with thorny bushes that screen the warehouses and factories from sight. The other side is the back of a row of old houses- maybe even colonial era- in a poor state of repair.
Parked with a front corner bent around a concrete godfather is mid-range Honda. The driver's-side door is open, and the entire vehicle is dressed with black and yellow police tape.
The officers climb out of the sedan and get to work.[/i]
