In 1962, a young Guang Jinli travels from China to America to study economics at USC in Los Angeles where he falls in love with a Chinese American girl. In 2017, the same Guang Jinli, now the First-ranked Vice Premier of The People's Republic of China for trade and investment policy, returns to America after a fifty-year absence. His trip includes a graduation speech at his alma mater and a meeting in Washington DC with the Treasury Secretary. Once there, he's confronted by a revelation that presents a potential threat to China-United States relations and the possible destruction of his stellar career. The most recent hundred years of the Chinese Revolution sets the stage for this unfolding story that moves from early twentieth century China, through Los Angeles in the sixties, and on to the twenty-first century White House. The book features a compelling, and sometimes quirky, cast of supporting characters who are cleverly interwoven with the storyline. Consequences is a book about our actions and the way they echo through history, often undecipherable until we're blessed with the perspective of elapsed time.
