Pure Unselfish Life is the thirty-fourth case of the World Edition and the second of East Asia. It is set in Lhasa, China.


The World Police Agency arrived in Lhasa following the lead they got in Beijing. Max revealed that he used to trek in the mountains, and wanted to do so in the Himalayas. However, they found the body of a hiker named Tenzin.

It was found that Tenzin displeased the locals by leaving Tibet for India and not being a Buddhist, but an atheist. Eventually, the team was ready to arrest the killer, who was revealed to be a temple caretaker as well as the victim's mother, Bakhto.

Bakhto felt that Tenzin had betrayed the traditions of Tibet. The reason she did not want to send him for India was that she was afraid that he'll be amalgamated in the urban lifestyle instead of his "pure unselfish life". When Tenzin returned and announced to the priest that he was an atheist, she felt that she had to kill Tenzin before he did any more sins so his sin count remained low. The Honorable Beaurigarde sentenced her to 39 years, 11 months and 29 days in prison without parole possibility.

Sahir was supposed to join the WPA that day, but he was not found anywhere. Since Sanjay Subramanyam is a rickshaw driver and thus probably had seen Sahir while roaming in his rickshaw, the player and Chief Bourne (who felt guilty for Salma Mahmoud's death) talked to him.

Sanjay said that he spotted Sahir hiking in the Himalayas. The team found a bloody hiking stick and deduced that Sahir had been injured after the blood was found to be his. Sahir was eventually found in the Himalayas. Sahir said that he read a blog post called "Black Renaissance" saying that any flight landing at the Lhasa airport will face bad luck. Thus, Sahir landed in a Bhutanese airport and decided to hike to Lhasa.

Bakhto also wanted to talk to the player. She said that she disapproved of her son's way, but the WPA was doing a good job fighting crimes so she wanted to give his possessions to them. She said that Tenzin had a weird black square-shaped device. Upon finding the device, Mako tried analyzing it. She found that it had some unpublished notes of Black Renaissance but they were encrypted and she could not decrypt it because someone else was trying to hack into the tablet.

Mako stated that she could find the identity of the hacker by her laptop, but she forgot it at Potala Palace. When her laptop was found, she identified the hacker as a certain Meghan Hackett, the tech expert of another worldwide police, and Mako's online friend. Mako was heartbroken that Meghan never told her about her job in the TSP, at which Meghan replied that Mako also never told her that she worked in the WPA. Mako stated that what Meghan did was a punishable offence, but Meghan told that she only wanted to help the WPA. Meghan had followed the Black Renaissance story for a while, and she hacked into Tenzin's tablet to find out more about the story. Tenzin got the unpublished chapters as a sneak peak from the author and Meghan tracked his IP address to Kathmandu, Nepal.

Following Meghan's lead, Chief Bourne decided they were going to Kathmandu to hunt down this writer once and for all.
