9781489085139: Fortune Cookie

It’s the 1960s and the world of advertising is coming alive – and it’s an exciting world to be part of. Simon Koo, a Chinese-Australian and promising young advertising executive, is sent to Singapore to establish an office. He finds himself thrust into an environment that is at once strangely familiar and profoundly different; one where the rules that govern behaviour – both in business and in personal life – differ wildly from what he is used to. And where all is not what it appears to be. Under the veneer of the commercial world lie some shocking truths – of people smuggling, drug trafficking and murder. And Mercy B. Lord, the woman Simon falls for, is caught up in it. From wartime Asian comfort houses to CIA spy rings, Bryce Courtenay takes us on a thrilling journey with a great love story at its heart.

From AudioFile:

Simon Koo--fourth-generation Australian, self-described "tree-stump-of-a-man," and a throwback to his Chinese ancestor--is sent by his advertising agency to be the creative force in their Singapore office. As Simon navigates his way through a minefield of cultural differences, Humphrey Bower never strikes a false note. Bower creates full-bodied characters, ranging from the devious Wing brothers and Beatrice Fong to Simon's mother, "Chairman Meow," and the beautiful Mercy B. Lord. Bower is simply wonderful detailing Chinese triads, human trafficking, spies, and a surprisingly tender love story. In spite of all the bad habits and questionable deals of the 1960s ad men on full display, Bryce Courtenay's novel is more than a Sino/Aussie version of TV's "Mad Men." Bower's flawless performance makes this irresistible listening. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
