Description

A village near Shanghaiis demolished to make room for the city. A young villager vows revenge on the corrupt officials who benefited. Eleven years later, he seizes his opportunity when a shadowy Shanghai-based investment group is reported to be financing a huge business deal in Hong Kong. Knowing none of this, and coping with problems of his own, consultant Harry West is engaged by the government in Hong Kong to evaluate the proposed deal.   Only after he arrives in Hong Kong does Harry discover that his assignment will be unlike anything he’s done before. His task: To uncover evidence of money laundering and corruption, evidence that will expose people who will stop at nothing to protect themselves. Along the way, Harry's journey is shaped by two women in Hong Kong, an American journalist who is investigating the same business deal and a long-lost love who comes back into his life. The Trail of Money, about secrecy and corrupt dealings in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and about the bonds of love and memory, keeps the reader guessing until the end.show more
