Abstract:

The massive imbalance in the sexes due to the penchant for male offspring since China's single-child policy was introduced in 1980, means brides are in short supply and the men most likely to find a wife are those in a strong financial position. With the economic liberalization of China and the rise of the wealthy businessman, an ancient tradition has resurged: the concubine. Young women, often students from poorer families, seek positions as mistresses at the beckoning call of wealthy men. Hidden away in lavish apartments and given large sums of pocket money, they enjoy a life of ease and luxury. The wives of these men have gone to drastic measures to unveil their fickle husbands' crimes. We take a ride with private detectives and meet the one dubbed, 'The Concubine Killer'.
