The verdict in the case of China's fallen political star Bo Xilai, due on September 22, will cap an extraordinary scandal involving bribes, murder, illicit love, political infighting, and a colourful yet tightly controlled trial. Even before the stunning five-day hearing last month, the downfall of the once-powerful Bo was already the most sensational drama in decades to rock the ruling Communist Party and its prized stability.
