This spellbinding adventure is a literary triumph that proves once again why James Clavell’s books have become modern classics.

Set in Hong Kong in 1963, the action of Noble House spans scarcely more than a week, but these are days of high adventure: from kidnapping and murder to financial double-dealing and natural catastrophes—fire, flood, landslide. Yet they are also days filled with all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong—the heart of Asia—rich in every trade … money, flesh, opium, power.

    " Clavell is one of my favcorite authors. All his books are Oriental extravaganzas. "

    " Another Clavell classic set in more modern times "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Adah | 2/15/2014

    " One of the best books I've ever read. I only dropped a star because of a few rather graphic sex scenes, but honestly, they helped to tell the story. The book is about Hong Kong during the 1960's, a freewheeling, money-grabbing, insane period in that city's history perfectly captured in this book. Tense, thrilling, extremely intricate, with some very bold characters and masterful, fearless storytelling. Clavell deserves to be a lot more famous than he is. "
