Being obsessed with money and power, Cheuk Yuk constantly neglects his family members and friends. Because of him, his wife and mentor pass away respectively, yet he shows no remorse at all. On the contrary, his craving for money and power continuously increases. His brother-in-law Chow Sun Yung, one of the CCB inspectors, is determined to put him in jail, collaborating with superior HO Sheung Yee and subordinate Chi Nga to gather evidence. Sun Yung thinks highly of Chi Nga and even regards her as his last apprentice, to his surprise, Chi Nga suddenly resigns and starts working for Cheuk Yuk. At first, she gains Cheuk Yuk’s second wife, Fong Ming Yu’s trust, following which she helps Cheuk Yuk deal with Chai Pui Fun, a mogul in the financial industry. It seems that Chi Nga has grasped total control, undermining Cheuk Yuk’s ambition. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

Story: Apparently this was an action based drama revolving around the financial business, where basically with money you can get away with anything. The main story was supposed to be focusing on the rich man with the 'midas' touch, unfortunately there is little development in that area, instead it focused too much (way too much) on the secondary storyline of the female cop. It focused on her family, her relationship, and her career. I'm not sure if that was the purpose of the drama, but that's the direction it went.

Acting/Cast: The last time I saw Bosco and Kate together in a drama together, I think was Lives of Omission, and I enjoyed that drama alot. It was actually one of the first TVB action dramas I watched and it got me interested in the genre a little more. Naturally when I first heard this I was excited! Bosco played his role exceptionally well alongside Nancy who was brilliant in this! Actually loved her relationship with Bosco - real cute! Was also surprised to see Sharon in a main role, but was rather disappointed with her acting in this as it was pretty mediocre... expected much more from her since seeing her awesome performance in Ghetto Justice. It was also great to see Jin in this! I really enjoy watching him and hope to see him in much more juicier roles! Jazz would be my favourite character in this. Loved his loyalty and sincere friendship and care towards the people around him.

Music: The only song I really liked was the ending song sung by Kate and Hubert.

Rewatch Value: I would never watch this again.

Overall: I went into this drama without any expectations because to be honest I had no idea what it was about, only who was in it. But I found this drama extremely disappointing. The story was weak and the character development was even weaker. There were many things that bugged me about this drama, especially at how ridiculously easy people just conveniently die O.o I feel like characters were all poorly written, and that they were all brainless - they jump to silly conclusions and make absurd decisions, and their emotions are kinda all over the place. The writers really need to focus on better character and story development. This drama could of probably deserved a 4/10 if it wasn't for the actors.
