Summary
Singapore, 1939: Life on the eve of World War II just isn't what it used to be for Walter Blackett, head of British Singapore's oldest and most powerful firm. Business may be booming, what with the war in Europe, the Allies are desperate for rubber and helpless to resist Blackett's price-fixing and market manipulation, but something is wrong. As swiftly as the police break one strike, the natives start up another; Blackett's daughter keeps entangling herself with the most unsuitable beaus; and his partner's idealistic son is more concerned with the League of Nations and vegetarianism than with industry. Even so, no one suspects that the world of the British Empire, of fixed boundaries between classes and nations, is about to come to a terrible end
