    If you like historical sagas this book may be for you The characters will travel from New York to China to Italy and back to New York The story starts out in the 1850s The central characters are the Savages owners of a large shipping company The story details their involvement in the opium trade and later as slave ships It's a story of one brother who hates his half brother because their father loved him best It is their tale of revenge against each other Though I have loved Stewart's books in the past I felt this one wasn't uite as good There is way too much detail in describing buildings And while a certain amount of historical background is necessary to build a setting and understand the conflicts this book went into too much detail It left me totally confused as to the hierarchy of several different Chinese rulers It was hard to tell the good from the bad characters And some scenes were overly long I did keep reading though because I knew there was big revenge that was going to come at the end and I wanted to see how the good brother was going to get back at the evil one It is not a disappointment from that perspective

    This is the third book I have read by Fred Mustard Stewart and once again I was not disappointed with his writing This story was mostly about Justin Savage the illegitimate son of a major New York shipping industry giant There has always been rivalry between Justin and his brother Sylvaner the legal heir but it intensifies after their father’s death Pirates opium trade murder plots war games blackmail the exotics of China and Italy first love and lots of lust are discussed The book is written over about 12 years starting in 1850 when Justin is just a teen and portrays his life into a young polished wealthy man despite his birth circumstances and bad boy past One thing I enjoy about Stewart’s novels is the tie of history into a story usually based around a family heritage

    A swsshbuckling adventure romance the setting in China for much of the book lent it oriental appeal while the story of this new york based sghipping family developed within international intrigue An interesting read

    I thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous depictions of NYC in the 1800's Stewart did a fine job taking his character from youth to manhood in one adventure after another I did not skip a page
