Chapter 160: Riddled with Holes (Part one)
Xu Cheng smiled . “Mr . Ambassador, we are only investigating and haven’t made any convictions yet . You don’t have to have such a strong attitude . If there’s no problem, then we will provide an explanation . But since we are investigating, we should follow the procedure . I think Mr . Ambassador is familiar with the law and procedures, right?”
“I don’t need you to teach me . Since you have to investigate, why bring so many people? You almost surrounded the entire building . Anyone not blind can see that you are not here to investigate but to directly arrest my people . If I didn’t show up, could you have already arrested some people and forced a confession out of them?”
Xu Cheng narrowed his eyes . “I just happened to arrest a batch, and it was the group led by the vice president of your nation’s business alliance . Mr . Ambassador, do you want me to release him? I already took him in, and I also forced a confession out of him . Is there a problem?”
Cunye was caught red-handed with the money, so it would be a bit hard to get him out of that one . The ambassador was suddenly unable to reply . He stared at Xu Cheng, feeling that this guy was extremely good at negotiations, both fast in reaction and highly alert .
Seeing the guy had become silent, Xu Cheng then said, “According to the clues, black money came from here, so was there a problem with me investigating this place? Mr . Ambassador, why aren’t you staying in your embassy but out here trying to get involved . Could the Wei Nation be behind this underground money house?”
“Let me tell you, you can’t slander us like this!” the ambassador retorted harshly, “Do you know what you are saying?”
Xu Cheng’s tone also became a lot more aggressive, “Then let me ask you, Mr . Ambassador, do you know what you are doing right now? What identity are you using to intervene on this investigation? Are you representing the Wei Nation or just yourself? If it’s the former, then I would have no choice but to suspect that the Wei Nation has other intentions . If it’s the latter, then let me tell you right now to move away . Please do not hinder us from investigating . Please comment after we are done with the procedures and have concluded the investigation . ”
Then, he gave a look to Li Chao, and Li Chao waved his hand forward, signaling for the special police officers to charge in .
“Don’t you dare!” the ambassador roared in a deep voice . “The Wei Nation business alliance isn’t a place anyone can just come and investigate . If you want to search, please present the search warrant . If you don’t have one, please get out!”
At this moment, with a “ding” sound, the elevator opened, and Li Chao panted as he ran over with the search warrant signed by the director . The reason Xu Cheng had been chit chatting with this old man was just to buy time to wait for his arrival . Now, with the search warrant here, he threw it at the ambassador and said to his men, “Start searching!”
“Yes, Sir!” Wu Gang and the others got the order and walked into the office in an orderly manner .
The ambassador saw the search warrant also had the official seal of the general office of the city police department, and his body trembled as he shouted, “If you can’t find anything, then I will file a complaint to your government!”
Xu Cheng was too lazy to deal with him . “Do whatever you want!”
Zuozhi saw how pissed the ambassador was . He walked over and said in a low voice, “Mr . Ambassador, please don’t worry . ”
The ambassador then looked at Zuozhi, lowering his voice as he asked, “Is there a problem or not? If there is, you know you will drag me down too . My career would end today as well . I only came over this time because of the benefits you gave me in the past, and I only stood up for you because I trust you . Don’t let me down . ”

“Don’t worry . Even if there’s a problem, they won’t find it,” Zuozhi said nonchalantly . “If there’s no professional team coming to scan with special equipment, it will be impossible for them to find what’s behind that thick metal wall . This is a layout that can withstand even several levels of explosions, how could it be opened so easily?”
Wu Gang and Li Chao brought people to search all over the place, and this time, they were more careful than ever, checking every corner and detail . Wu Gang would even lay his face on the ground and knock to see if it was hollow underneath . Seeing this sight, Xu Cheng smiled, very pleased to see that his men were being so careful .
After half an hour passed, Zuozhi and the ambassador were both smiling . The ambassador even came to Xu Cheng’s side and said, “Young man, you are thinking about running before you can even walk, don’t you know that you will fall? This time, I think your career might be coming to an end . How are you not nervous at all?”
Xu Cheng watched his subordinates search as he smiled and said, “If I’m nervous, then my subordinates will feel uneasy and restrained when searching . Being the captain for Team 2 is more complicated than you think . ”
Just then, Li Chao, Wu Gang, and the special police officers had finished checking everywhere but couldn’t find anything . However, they didn’t dare to conclude the investigation, so Li Chao came over and asked Xu Cheng, “Boss, do you have any thoughts?”
Xu Cheng smiled, and then he walked forward . Their team had two steps in their procedure . First, they would do a search, and then Xu Cheng would perform his search .
The ambassador mocked behind his back, “Even if you can’t find anything, are you going to make something out of nothing and press charges?”
Li Chao stood beside him and reminded, “Do you know why we asked for his thoughts after we finished searching, instead of telling him that there’s nothing?”
Before the ambassador could speak, Li Chao continued, “Because our boss is training us . Maybe he already found it, but he’s just not in a hurry to say it . ”
Indeed, Xu Cheng stood in front of the giant bookshelf with his arms crossed and said, “Mr . Zuozhi, can I ask who you asked to design this bookshelf in the past?”
Zuozhi frowned . “What do you mean?”
“Nothing, I just find it interesting,” he shrugged and said as his hand moved past the rows of books on the shelf . Zuozhi’s eyes narrowed at the sight of this . Xu Cheng suddenly took back his hand, looking at the dust on his fingers and saying, “How long has it been since you last cleaned the shelf and the books?”
Zuozhi didn’t say anything .
Xu Cheng: “Let me guess . Your office is really clean, so your secretary or assistant probably cleans your office every day . However, it’s only the bookshelf that you don’t allow her to touch, but you also wouldn’t have time to clean it yourself, and that’s why there’s dust here . Now, why do you not want your secretary to touch this bookshelf? There should be a secret, right?”
Zuozhi’s eyelids jumped . “What do you want to say?”
Xu Cheng still had a smile on his face, and that smile wouldn’t be unfamiliar to Cunye at all because it was the same one he saw moments before he got facked . Xu Cheng kept browsing past the books before stopping his hand on a very ordinary chicken soup for the soul book . He then said, “A successful entrepreneur would never believe chicken soup stories, because they all understand that success was definitely not made by reading those books . But, I’m quite curious . On the entire shelf, why is it that just this book doesn’t have any dust . It’s odd to think that you would read this, so I feel, could there be a secret?”
At that moment, Zuozhi’s face completely changed, and Xu Cheng directly pulled that book out from the shelf and triggered a mechanism . Then, the shelf began to quietly split into two and move to both sides, and in front of everyone’s dumbfounded faces appeared a concrete steel wall .
