Last Days in Shanghai

€ 17.95


`Luke Slade, a young Congressional aide, begins this business trip to China like all other international travel he`s endured with `Lyin` Leo`: buried under a slew of diplomatic runarounds, non-functioning cell phones, and humiliation from the Congressmanat every turn. But on day two, a new challenge rears its ugly head: Leo goes on a drunken bender and disappears into the night. Unsure what dubious business his corrupt and buffoonish boss had planned, Luke must piece together the Congressman`s lies while maintaining appearances with their Chinese contacts. Amidst the confusion, a little bleary from jet-lag and alcohol, Luke receives a briefcase full of money from the mayor of a rural Chinese province. Luke accepts the `gift` in his daze, but when he later realizes his mistake and tries to return the cash, he discovers even more anxiety-inducing news. The mayor is dead. As Luke tries to unravel the complex minefield of corruption he`s tumbled into, he must also confront his own role in the events. Unwitting marionette? Fall guy? Or perhaps someone more capable of moral compromise than he would have liked to believe. Last Days in Shanghai is an unforgettable debut by a writer to watch. It`s both a hold-on-to-your-seat thriller and a pitch-perfect exploration of present day China-the country`s rapacious capitalism, the shocking boom of its cities and the wholesale eradication of its traditions. `-
