Summary:
The Great Recession of 2008 humbled many good men. Once featured on the front pages of New York's business and society papers, Jack Davis had spiraled downward in the aftermath of the crisis. How far will someone go to get their reputation back? Jack is about to find out. Exiled to the last remnant of his investment empire--a rusty silicon smelter in the Chinese jungle north of the Burmese border--his comeback seems far-fetched. But it's either take his best shot or crawl away from the world in shame. At first, his prospects appear grim. Asked when they could earn a profit, his general manager answered, "In China, no one make money in regular business. Make money other ways." When Jack discovers his employees are using the company's trucks to run jade from Burma over the border to China, his first instinct is to clean house--until he learns they're making more money running jade than he is smelting silicon. Jack's jade buyer tries to warn him. "The problem is, it's never just running jade," the man said. "Jade leads to other things way beyond your control. You're a foreigner, for God's sake.
