Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians (soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan) and China Rich Girlfriend, is back with an uproarious new novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia's greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance.


When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be by her bedside—but he's not alone. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park—a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore—Nicholas’s childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband—a man hell bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China’s second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new step-daughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing. A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a kidnapping at Hong Kong’s most elite private school to a surprise marriage proposal at an Indian palace, caught on camera by the telephoto lenses of paparazzi, Kevin Kwan's hilarious, gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich people problems.

    I've read Kevin's first two books and this one was just as good. Maybe better! As an American who lived in Asia for 30 years I loved the description of the cities and area. Very accurate and certainly made me nostalgic. His characters are fabulous and reminded me of many Asians I've known while working in Hong Kong and traveling the region. Except the ones in Kevin's books talk billions and not millions! I think Kevin is an extremely good writer and he's created a page turner series of books. His first 3 books are so funny and impossible to put down. And I really like the way he's developed so many interesting characters who flow smoothly from book to book. The only error I noticed was when he mentioned a 12 hole golf course. But love his characters and waiting for more! Highly recommend Kevin's 3rd book....get it now!
