From the book cover: On a foggy January night Hilary Galt was found dead in his private office in London with a bullet in his brain. Oddly enough his shoes were on the desk, and his feet were clad in a pair of velvet slippers embellished with curious Chinese characters. Sixteen years later Sir Frederic Bruce, famous Scotland Yard detective, was shot through the heart during a dinner party at a penthouse in San Francisco. He had been wearing those same slippers, but when his body was discovered the slippers were missing! He had discussed some of his reasons for being in San Francisco with the famous Detective Sergeant Charlie Chan of the Honolulu police. Who was Eve Durand that so greatly concerned Sir Frederic? Why was he so anxious to obtain information from Li Gung? Free shipping on domestic orders $25 and over!
