Noble House: The Epic Novel of Modern Hong Kong
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: November 2015
Duration: 54 hours 50 minutes
This spellbinding adventure is a literary triumph that proves once again why James Clavell's books have become modern classics.
Set in Hong Kong in 1963, the action of Noble House 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 also days filled with all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong-the heart of Asia-rich in every trade ... money, flesh, opium, power.
"Fiction for addicts...extravagantly romantic...a book that you can get lost in for weeks...staggering complexity...not only is it as long as life, it's also as rich with possibilities."-New York Times
