Slamming the Close


This fast paced story of treachery, deceit, violence, and ruination begins when three Memphis cotton merchants conspire with Hong Kong and Beijing operatives and a corrupt Chinese government official to execute a plan to drive down the price of cotton. It quickly becomes a deadly chase for gold bullion and a ruthless woman through the streets of Hong Kong, Beijing, and New York.

The plan to rig the cotton market is exposed when a determined New York hedge fund manager engages a Memphis private detective, who joins forces with two dedicated police officials in Hong Kong and Beijing to unravel the conspiracy by following a trail of death and financial ruin that soon leads them to the gold and the temptress who set things in motion.
