In Yokohama, the gai-jin, the hated foreigners, seek to profit from the chaos.

At the head of the Noble House - and heir to the title of Tai-Pan - stands Malcolm Struan, who is determined to become his own man and marry the woman he loves.

Review by

Like all Clavell's novels I found Gai-Jin very easy to read and entertaining. However, a few years on from having read this work I can remember very little in the way of details.A good read but not Clavell's best.
