High in the hills above fashionable Montecito, California, slipping in and out of their mansions on Swizzle Stick Road, a ridiculously wealthy family is under siege. A crooked lawyer, a beautiful Chinese pro golfer, and a celebrity-mad plastic surgeon conspire to convince a wealthy family’s patriarch to move his factories from Cleveland to China. But the youngest son, a gay man, gets wind of the conspiracy and fights like a mad dog to stop it.
What follows is a brutally funny comedy of grandiose intentions, half-baked revenge, heroic upper crust foolishness, and a passionate cross-cultural romance. David Drum's Introducing the Richest Family in America runs the gauntlet of greed, betrayal and desire as America’s richest family teeters precariously on the edge of dissolution and struggles to right itself again.
