Book five in the Asian Saga (by time period of the story, not publication date).

Ian Dunross is the current tai-pan of Noble house, the trading company originally started by Dirk Struan, a charismatic and ruthless businessman. Though the Noble House has controlled trade in Hong Kong for many years, the company is in trouble. An American businessman and a long-time rival scheme to take over the Noble House. Meanwhile, the various governments seeking to control Hong Kong engage in varying levels of espionage, which puts everyone in danger, whether they are aware of politics or not. A bit of romance and some natural disasters are added to the mix as well.

Every current conflict seems to be rooted in past events and somehow connected to Dirk Struan. I recommend reading the entire marvelous series, though Noble House can stand alone.
