Noble House will fill the summer with fantasy—and maybe the autumn, too.


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.

From the Paperback edition.

There's nothing wrong with Clavell's new "Asian Saga" novel that cutting 900 pages wouldn't fix.
