Chinese Walls by David Price
I was given the chance to review this book by David Clive Price. Right from the beginning I realised I had never read anything like it before.
To me banking just means somewhere I make sure there is money to buy my weekly shopping and to cover all my bills.
I never really understood what a cut throat business it really is and what kind of self serving person you had to be if you wanted to get ahead in that world.
The story revolves around Nicholas Powell, a married man with children, who is taken from his comfortable, settled position and moved to Hong Kong on the eve of it being handed back to China.
With such a distance between Nicholas and his family Nicholas starts to question himself and finds himself attracted to Daniel, a young Chinese bank manager.
The story then takes many twists following the unraveling of Nicholas' private and business life.
I found the story well put together and is written by a man who has clearly experienced the cultures of both London and Hong Kong as David has.
If you are looking for a multi-cultural romance with a touch of corporate backstabbing, then this is definitely the book for you.
