It's 1938 and the exclusive Oriental nightclub in San Francisco's 'Forbidden City' is holding auditions for showgirls. In the dark, scandalous glamour of the club, three girls from very different backgrounds stumble into each other's lives. All have secrets. Grace, an American-born Chinese girl has fled the Midwest and an abusive father. Helen is from a Chinese family which has deep roots in San Francisco's Chinatown and as both friends know, Ruby is Japanese passing as Chinese. Then in a heartbeat everything changes. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and paranoia, suspicion and a shocking act of betrayal threaten to destroy their lives. An historical saga of desire and ambition, betrayal and revenge set amidst the glitz and debauchery of burlesque entertainment on the 'chop suey circuit'. The unforgettable characters and thorny intricacies of female friendships live in the memory long after you close the book. 401pp in paperback.
