This is book number 5 in the Asian Saga series.
Taking place over the course of an eventful week in 1963 Hong Kong, James Clavell's Noble House is a masterfully woven novel of true suspense.
Ian Dunross, the current tai-pan of the illustrious yet financially troubled Struan empire, is racing to undo the damage his predecessor left behind and to once again stand on stable ground. And he'll do whatever it takes--including striking a hard-fought deal with an American millionaire. But his rival, Quillan Gornt, has other plans. Suddenly caught in a dubious plot involving Soviet spies, Hong Kong's criminal underground, and the hostile takeover of his company, Dunross holds nothing back in the fight for the Noble House.
Espionage, mayhem, and high-stakes betrayals make Noble House Clavell's most prolific and imaginatively crafted narrative in the Asian Saga.
