Toast = A person receiving much attention or acclaim ?

Context:
China does not have an independent police or judicial system; party leaders order investigations. “It’s a very politicized process,” says Minxin Pei, a professor at Claremont McKenna College in California and author of numerous studies on corruption in China. “If your patrons do not protect you, you’re toast.”

@oristarA,
Use it once too often in the same group, and you are toast.
