Description
"Clavell's biggest triumph yet . . . storytelling done with dash and panache . . . a rousing read."-- Washington Post The setting is Hong Kong, 1963. The action 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 days filled as well with all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong--the heart of Asia-- rich in every trade. . . money, flesh, opium, power. Praise for Noble House "Fiction for addicts . . . extravagantly romantic . . . a book that you can get lost in for weeks . . . staggering complexity . . . not only is it as long as life, it's also as rich with possibilities." -- New York Times "Tremendous entertainment . . . a seamless marvel of pure storytelling." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer "A mesmerizer . . . spellbinding." -- Los Angeles Times "Breathtaking . . . only terms like colossal, gigantic, titanic, incredible, unbelievable, gargantuan, are properly descriptive . . . . Clavell has made himself the king of super-adventure thrillers." -- Chicago Tribune Book World
