But the secrets Dan overhears at these events eventually lead him down a twisted, intrigue-laden path. When he becomes privy to a scandal that runs from the depths of society up to its highest rungs, Dan must find a way to lay bare the corruption - without revealing the dangerous truth about himself. A thrilling rollercoaster ride through the new world of boomtown China.
