The Story of Three-Body Problem

During the Cultural Revolution, Ye Wenjie, an astrophysics graduate from Tsinghua University, witnesses her father get beaten to death during a struggle session by Red Guards from Tsinghua High School, who were supported by Ye's mother and younger sister. Ye is officially branded a traitor and is forced to join a labor brigade in Inner Mongolia, where she befriends a government journalist who enlists Ye's help in transcribing a letter to the government. The letter details policy suggestions based on the book Silent Spring, which Ye read. However, the journalist betrays Ye, who is sentenced to prison after the letter is viewed as seditious by the government. In prison, Ye is recruited by Yang Weining and Lei Zhicheng, two military physicists working under Red Coast, a secret Chinese initiative to use high-powered radio waves to damage spy satellites.
Four decades later, Beijing police ask nanotech engineer Wang Miao, along with cunning detective Shi Qiang, to infiltrate a secretive cabal of scientists after a spate of inexplicable suicides, including Ye Wenjie's daughter Yang Dong. Wang's investigation lead to a mysterious online game and immerse him in a virtual world ruled by the intractable and unpredictable interaction of its three suns. While at the same time, they start to notice that the world's governments are communicating closely with each other and have put aside their traditional rivalries to prepare for war.
