Kermit O’Doyle, a paraplegic, works as an analyst on the China desk of the CIA’s Economic Analysis Unit. He’s tasked with discovering why the Chinese are flooding the US with designer hi-tops that sell for less than canvas sneakers. Everyone wants them and soon they’re outselling America’s top brands.

Moreover, Kermit and the paraplegics he plays wheelchair basketball with are beset with unusual nervous reactions since switching to the Chinese sneakers. Is there a connection? If so, how to react to China’s ominous economic attack.
