"The scandalous story of the corruption of the Bo Xilai family--the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood; Bo's secret lovers, who may have included Chinese film stars; the blackmailing by Bo's supporters; the hasty trial and sentencing of Gu Kailai, Bo's wife--is only the tip of an iceberg and just the beginning of a cataclysmic power struggle that could rock the very foundation of China's all-powerful Communist Party. By the time it is over, the machinations in Beijing and throughout the country that began with Bo's fall could affect China's economic development and disrupt the world's political and economic order"-- Provided by publisher.

I read mysteries set in contemporary china. This book is frighteningly like the fiction. Great way to learn contemporary china's political system.
