Chinese Title - Xing Ming Shi Ye

When this series was announced, the difficulty in this series is translating the Chinese title into English. The producers opted for the sensible Chinese Detective. Some interpret it as Xing Ming Private Adviser or Advisers of Criminal Law. The TV's English sub uses Secretary Of Jurisprudence, which is what the Chinese book being sold in Amazon uses. I understand the Secretary of Jurisprudence. What the Xing Ming Shi Ye does in this series is investigate, collect evidence and come up with a conclusion to advise the magistrate giving the verdict. So technically they're investigators or rather crime scene investigators or CSI. But their verdict bears heavily on the magistrate's ultimate verdict so you can say they're well... secretary of jurisprudence does sound good. Chinese Detective as a title is too simplistic.


Meng Tian Chu returns from overseas to Ming dynasty China in search of his father and solves various difficult and at times perilous mysteries with the outwardly meek, but internally resolute native adviser Duan Ping. The two of them use very different methods to solve the same cases and are constantly at odds with each other while vying for the affection of the same girl, Xia Feng Yi, a butcher's daughter.
