Summary

The scandalous story of the corruption of the Bo Xilai family - the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood; Bo's secret lovers, who may have included Chinese film stars; the blackmailing by Bo's supporters; the hasty trial and sentencing of Gu Kailai, Bo's wife - is only the tip of an iceberg and just the beginning of a cataclysmic power struggle that could rock the very foundation of China's all-powerful Communist Party. By the time it is over, the machinations in Beijing and throughout the country that began with Bo's fall could affect China's economic development and disrupt the world's political and economic order. This is the first book for non-Chinese readers on the scandal's full significance, and comes right at the moment of a transformational powershift in the country. A Death in the Lucky Holiday Hoteloffers original analysis of the broader implications of the Bo Xilai story based on unique access to high-level sources and inside information - by two authors who are the preeminent authorities on the issue.
