His name was Ian Dunross, and in the torrential rain he drove his old MG sports car cautiously around the corner into Dirk's Street that skirted the Struan Building in the waterfront of Hong Kong. (from the first line)
"
"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 Publisher:
The setting is Hong Kong, 1963. The action spans scarcely more than a week, but these are the days of high adventure: from kidnapping and murder to financial double-dealing and natural catastrophes -- fire, flood, and 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.
Annotation:
This novel takes place during one week in 1963 Hong Kong--a brief period which encompasses murder, kidnapping, fire, flood, the opium trade, and a brutal power struggle.
Author Bio
James Clavell
Born Charles Edmund DuMaresq de Clavelle, the multi-talented James Clavell wrote many successful screenplays (including THE GREAT ESCAPE and TO SIR WITH LOVE), and was a director and producer, but he was best known for his monumental best-selling novels set in Asia. Among them were KING RAT (1962), based on his own experiences as a prisoner of war in Singapore's Changi prison; SHOGUN (1975); and NOBLE HOUSE (1981). Clavell died of cancer at his home in Switzerland, just short of his 70th birthday.

Praise

New York Times
"'Noble House' isn't art. It isn't even slick. But it touches a number of nerves. And its scale is occasionally dizzying. At 1,200 pages, it's a book you can get lost in for weeks." - Christopher Lehmann-Haupt 0/28/1981
