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

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

John Quincannon must search 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, searches for the corpse of a millionaire, stolen from a sealed family crypt and currently being held for ransom.

Is there a connection between the two body snatchings? Or is it simply greed? And why is the enigmatic Englishman who calls himself Sherlock Holmes watching so carefully from the shadows?
