The Control Center (Book 1): THE CHINA AFFAIRS

by Brad Good


A chance meeting one night in Shanghai introduces American banker Jack Gold to an Israeli man named Ari, who has a stunning proposition: Help Israel and the United States infiltrate China’s heavily guarded Control Center and address the nation with the truth they deserve to hear.

China, a country of 1.4 billion citizens, is an existential threat to itself and the rest of the world. With its news and media censored through the Control Center before being broadcast to viewers, the people of China have no hope of realizing their government is only looking to enrich and reward its most prominent leaders.

But getting into the Control Center is not going to be easy. And even if such a dangerous undertaking proves successful, though, there is no guarantee that the growing tensions between China and the United States can be quelled. But Jack’s love for China, and the beautiful artist he meets one night, pushes him to the brink as he risks everything to help a nation of people whose lives and livelihoods have been stifled by government control.

Written by Brad Good, who started living and working in the People’s Republic of China in 1988, THE CHINA AFFAIRS is a series of four novels that take place in China. Good brings rare on-the-ground knowledge of contemporary Chinese political, social, and cultural issues, and associated international affairs.

The Trade Agreement (Book 2): THE CHINA AFFAIRS

by Brad Good


Jack Gold has done the impossible: he has penetrated the China’s Control Center and broadcast a message of both personal and economic freedom to the country’s 1.4 billion citizens. With a new president and an opening of the information that citizens have access to, Jack hopes that China will transform into the country he has always known it can be.

But change does not come easily and Jack finds his newfound fame difficult to deal with, especially when his main focus now is on trying to repair the damage to his relationship with Jojo.

Wang Yang, the new head of state in China, needs Jack’s help in carving out a new trade deal that is acceptable to both China and the United States. Jack is up against a myriad of forces that want nothing more than to see him fail and will go to extreme lengths to ensure that happens.
