This is an auction for FORTUNE COOKIE by Bryce Courtenay.

"Bryce Courtenay takes us into a world he knows intimately . . . It's the 1960s and the advertising industry is in full swing. But under the slick veneer lies some shocking truths . . . Simon Wong, a Chinese-Australian and promising young advertising executive, is sent to Singapore to establish an office. He finds himself thrust into an environment that is at once strangely familiar and profoundly different; one where the rules that govern behaviour - both in business and in personal life - differ wildly from what he is used to. And where all is not what it appears to be. Under the veneer of the commercial world lie some shocking truths - of people smuggling, drug trafficking and murder. And Mercy B Lord, the woman Simon falls for, is caught up in it. From wartime Asian comfort houses to CIA spy rings, Bryce Courtenay takes us on a thrilling journey with a great love story at its heart."
