Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, September 2017. Year of the Rooster. Twenty years after the handover of the British Crown colony to communist China. The process to designate the territory's leader has been suspended, leading to renewed calls for electoral reform. A high-flying investment banker is found at dawn on his doorstep, brutally murdered, his body almost cut in half. More financiers are soon killed in spectacular fashion, triggering a game of cat and mouse between the police and an elusive Japanese assassin, known within Tokyo's underworld as Shiryo, the spirit of death. The investigation takes Chief Inspector Ethan Blake and Inspector Suki Lam from the boardrooms of multinational banks to seedy industrial warehouses in Kwun Tong and Aberdeen, as they desperately try to find a motive for the grisly series of murders. In his debut crime novel, former investment banker Philippe Espinasse takes a ride on the dark side of Asia's fast-changing financial capital. Hong Kong becomes a playground, where wealthy expatriates rub shoulders with prostitutes and tycoons, while a younger generation aspires to democratic ideals.

From a historical point of view, the main activity of investment banks is what today we call security underwriting. Investment banks buy securities, such as bonds and stocks, from an issuer and then sell them to the ?nal investors. In the eighteenth century, the main securities were bonds issued by governments. The way these bonds were priced and placed is extraordinarily similar to the system that inve- ment banks still use nowadays. When a government wanted to issue new bonds, it negotiated with a few prominent “middlemen” (today we would call them investment bankers). The middlemen agreed to take a fraction of the bonds: they accepted to do so only after having canvassed a list of people they could rely upon. The people on the list were the ?nal investors. The middlemen negotiated with the government even after the issuance. Indeed, in those days governments often changed unilaterally the bond conditions and being on the list of an important middleman could make the difference. On the other hand, middlemen with larger lists were considered to be in a better bargaining position. This game was repeated over time, and hence, reputation mattered. For the middlemen, being trusted by both the investors on the list and by the issuing governments was crucial.
