Set in 1842 about the adventures of a self made shipping magnate who operates in the far East and who believes himself to be dying but wants to do something useful and exciting while he still can. He therefore tries to help a small group of islanders who are being threatened by the Dutch colonialists. This is quite an unusual plot that works well and is very readable.

Set on the 1840's merchant adventures seize fortunes, fight pirates and create empire.

Well written adventure from a talented author which still reads well despite being forty years old.

Looking forward to the last part

Please see my review for Jade Gate, another book in this series. My review is the same for this, the last in the series.
