It is the early 19th century, when European traders and adventurers first began to penetrate the forbidding Chinese mainland. And it is the 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 a bastion of British power, and to make himself the supreme ruler: the Tai-Pan. Following Shogun, this is second in the Asian Saga.
