Whirlwind is chronologically the last book in The Asian Saga. It takes you back to 1979 in Iran. Clavell creates a vivid, complex picture of Iran in those days and the dangers for foreigners to live and work there. Mainly it is about a group of people running a helicopter company. When Khomeini takes over, Gavallan, the owner of S-G Helicopters, has to get his people and helicopters out of Iran under extreme dangerous conditions in a very short time. The story is inspired by true events such as the struggle of Bristow Helicopters to escape Iran.
