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.
