Noble House

Location(s): Hong Kong

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): 1960s



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.
