An opera singer fallen on hard times, Franziska Goldmann has become the star courtesan in 19th century Hong Kong. Through a chance encounter with the visiting Prince Alfred, the first Duke of Edinburgh, the young woman receives an opportunity that could alter her destiny. But it is the other unpredictable characters in her life, including her lover Wilhelm Fischer, a German anarchist, and the devious procurer Jacob Meyer, who may better determine her fate. Story inspired by actual events.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ulrich Baer's first collection of stories is just as unique and original as it sounds. The special outsider-insider tone and perspective gives us stories that take place in China, but the deep insights Baer shares with us are not about a place or a culture but about humanity itself." --Etgar Keret, author, The Nimrod Flip-Out and Suddenly a Knock on the Door
"[Ulrich Baer] explores a side of Shanghai few of us have encountered, with passion and wit." --David Barboza, Shanghai Bureau Chief, New York Times
