David Clive Price's newest book, Chinese Walls (the first novel in his Unexplored Territory trilogy), is a contemporary tale of business espionage set in the financial mega centers of London and Hong Kong. In this remarkable page-turner, Price brilliantly weaves a story of corruption and personal fallout that will leave the reader wondering what is fiction and what is fact.
As a former speechwriter for some of the world's leading banks, Price's knowledge of the inner workings of the financial industry adds depth and color to a story that is equally suspenseful, romantic, and attains the highest quality of literary fiction.
Nicholas Powell accepts an advisory position in Hong Kong to one of the world’s principal banking institutions during the handover of the territory to China. Leaving behind a wife in the United Kingdom who is happily settled into their married routine and adult children who no longer need his constant guidance and support, Nicholas feels empowered to live life on his terms and explore passions, both professional and personal, that he previously denied himself.
But as his relationships begin to fall apart and his career becomes the center of a corporate scandal, Nicholas finds it harder and harder to salvage his identity and what matters most – love and family.
Readers who are tired of mystery, thrillers, and suspense with the same story lines and predictable endings will appreciate this smart read that is in a class of its own.
