This is the story of Rick Grajirena and his efforts to import and distribute Miller Beer in a land where capitalism is as capricious and corrupt as the bureaucrats, soldiers, hustlers, and ever-present "Mafiya" he had to include in the process. It is an entertaining and highly enlightening tale of vision and persistence that has a little bit of everything -- crime, cross-cultural confusion, corruption at the highest levels -- all inter-twined with Harper's dramatic account of Grajirena's struggle to dominate the new "Wild West" of Russia.
