Description

Drug lords, missing millionaires, corrupt cops ... just
another day for Carpenter and Quincannon Detective Services.

Two missing bodies and two separate investigations take
Carpenter and Quincannon from the heights above San Francisco Bay to the depths
of Chinatown's opium dens.

For John Quincannon, this is a first: searching a Chinatown
opium den for his client's husband, missing in the middle of a brewing tong war
set to ignite over the stolen corpse of Bing Ah Kee.

Meanwhile, his partner, Sabina Carpenter, unsure of the dark
secrets her suitor might be concealing, searches for the corpse of a
millionaire, stolen from a sealed family crypt and currently being held for
ransom.

With the threat of a tong war hanging over the city—a war
perhaps being spurred on by corrupt officials—Carpenter and Quincannon have no
time to lose in solving their cases. Is there a connection between the two body
snatchers? Or is simple greed the answer to this one?

And why is the enigmatic Englishman who calls himself
Sherlock Holmes watching so carefully from the shadows?
