Chris Wong's father believes in the old Chinese proverb: in books, there are golden houses and beautiful girls. Study with diligence, he tells Chris, and you will find riches, happiness and wisdom. Studying law provides him with the golden house readily enough, but Chris is searching for the right girl to live in it with him. Much of this Hong Kong novel takes place around Handover time. The ups and downs of love and lust, misunderstandings and betrayal are mingled with non-fiction background and events.
