Shining City Book Description:

A major earthquake strikes Tokyo, bringing destruction and chaos. The political and financial power of the entire country, concentrated within its boundaries, is thrown into complete disarray causing unprecedented global aftershocks. How will Japan, the largest investor in other nations over the last two decades, rebuild its capital city? Will the Japanese sell their foreign holdings and throw the world's markets into further chaos? Will other nations overcome their subtle resentment of the Japanese success and open their hearts and wallets to this imperial and, at times, imperious nation when it needs help? Who, in the global financial community, will put their careers on the line to assist the Japanese? how do individuals balance a nation's needs against their own sense of honor and integrity? This novel goes beyond the sound bites and follows the people involved, from Tokyo to New York to London. Among the principal participants-American, Japanese and European-personal motives clash with higher aspirations in a tense, dangerous struggle that affects millions of lives. Their battle to rebuild and redefine the global structure of the 21st century forms the basis of this exciting and insightful novel.
