Even the historic end of British Colonial Rule doesn't stop the eccentric crime that always overwhelms Hong Kong's Yellowthread Street precinct. Detective Chief Inspector Harry Feiffer is trying to deduce whether an unfortunate janitor was the intended target of a deadly blast of buckshot that cut him cleanly in half. Meanwhile, Detectives Spencer and Auden are convinced they've come face-to-face with the Curse of the Mummy's Tomb, or the side effects of too much overtime. And Inspector O'Yee is eagerly awaiting the arrival of his new boss with the catchy title: Colonel Claude Kong of the Chinese People's Police.
