It is the early 19th century, when European traders and adventurers first began to penetrate the forbidding Chinese mainland. And it is in this exciting time and exotic place that a giant of an Englishman, Dirk Struan, sets out to turn the desolate island of Hong Kong into an impregnable fortress of British power - and to make himself supreme ruler: Tai-Pan!
Number one New York Times best-selling author James Clavell's works have become beloved modern classics. This critically acclaimed historical novel is another fine example of a master at work.

The best audiobook ever....

Ripping good yarn with expert narration
This is one of the best I've listened to.
No, I have not. But Gildart's characterisations are amazing. I would not hesitate to listen to this again, comparing it favourably to the voices on the other Clavell novels.
