From the author of Shogun and King Rat, comes another epic. The setting is Hong Kong, 1963. Under the eyes of the KGB, the CIA, and the People'S Republic of China, British and American businessmen maneuver for control of Hong Kong's oldest trading house. 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, and landslide. Here is all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong - the heart of Asia - rich in every trade...money, flesh, opium and power.
