Chapter 10 Summary

Iselin solidifies his power in the senate, leading investigative committees and strong-arming opponents with hints of blackmail. Raymond's mother manages his every appearance, going so far as to instruct her husband on how he ought to take his bathroom breaks. Iselin becomes hated on an international level, but is nevertheless reelected to his second term in the senate.

One day, Chunjin arrives at Shaw's office at the newspaper and asks him for a job. Shaw does not recognize him, but after introductions recalls that Chunjin was his patrol's interpreter. Raymond does not want to hire him, but after some persuasion, accepts Chunjin as his personal assistant.
