Nikki Turner, Queen of Hip-Hop Lit, is back with one of her gutsiest female characters yet, a glamorous chick with a high-end hustle that can rival any man’s game.

As the respected, renowned concierge for a luxury hotel chain, Beijing Lee caters to the wealthy and famous. Whether it’s securing a dinner reservation, a fleet of limos, or a record deal, or protecting her clients from the paparazzi, there’s nothing Beijing can’t do. She’s stacked up an impressive pile of IOUs from the world’s elite—and one day she decides it’s time to start cashing in. Before long, she’s a five-star diva running her own lucrative business, where she secures her clients their most outrageous—and increasingly illegal—desires.

But Beijing has her own addiction: a man named Lootchee, who lavishes her with even more diamonds and luxury than she already has. But behind Lootchee’s charm and over-the-top romantic gestures is a selfish, high-stakes hustler who lures Beijing into a dangerous web that takes even this seasoned enterpriser by surpise, and breaks her heart in the process.

Once the ball finally drops, it’ll take a ghost from Beijing’s past to rescue her—not only from those who are out to seriously harm her, but from herself.

We stayed one night at a 4.5 star hotel. Lacking the half-star presumably because of having no swimming pool, and also rooms having a kettle yet no actual directly drinkable water (i know, i know, i'm the fussy foreigner who wants to drink cold water, i know...). Their food was fantastic though, some of the best high-end Chinese food I have eaten in months, good as in "quality ingredients combined and cooked well" rather than "elaborate and expensive-looking" in the way Chinese cuisine sometimes can be when it tries to impress. The hotel was in a small nondescript town in the middle-of-nowhere, but only an hour from Beijing, so presumably well-accustomed to receiving conferences and corporate hospitality trips. --------------------------------- Right, it's past midnight, I'm peckish. Who needs high-end cuisine when you can head out to the corner shop for a can of cold Tsingtao and a bag of instant noodles...

The St. Regis Beijing (Guoji Julebu Fandian) is one of the best hotels in Beijing, even in China. Bush and Clinton chose this hotel when they visited Beijing. Thanks my best friend recommend this hotel for me. The Diplomatic Room is fantastic. I had a great birthday holiday here.
