Fresh from Harvard, hotshot American Jonathan “Wendy” Lee had the good fortune of meeting and marrying Amanda Wong, daughter of the rich and powerful Henry Wong, the most influential banker in Hong Kong.
Known as an eccentric figure within the affluent clubs of Hong Kong’s high society, Wendy spends idle days impeccably dressed in 1930s-style cream-coloured linen suits, lunching alone.
His life appears perfect, until his father-in-law suddenly disappears without a trace.
Within days, he must respond to a take-over threat, a blackmail attempt and his wife’s disloyalty. Under the guidance of double-crossing investment bankers, wise friends and alluring women, Wendy races to uncover the layers of deception right under his nose before it’s too late.
