Beijing, sometime in the future. Economic armageddon has ravaged the West, but China has emerged richer and stronger. The Chinese own Starbucks, which now serves Dragon Lattes. But mysteriously, a month has gone missing from historical records, and no-one can remember a thing about it. Chen and a quirky circle of dissidents set out on a quest to uncover what happened. He travels across China to witness evidence of what is terribly wrong with China's new prosperity. We meet a Chinese slave, Zhang Dou, and encounter a village that is being exterminated by pollution from a local factory. Chen kidnaps a high-ranking party official to make him spill the beans. Gradually, the horrifying truth of China's false boom comes to light... Methods of cunning, deception and terror are unveiled by the truth-seekers in this thriller-expose of the information-controlled China of today.
