About: 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.
