To prove a case against one small-time Hong Kong dope-pusher seemed a simple enough task for the David Chan Detective Agency. Then came the doubts about the motives of a close-mouthed client. Suddenly Chan was too close to one of the giant Hong Kong narcotics syndicates, the knives were flashing among the sampans and a man dies violently aboard a blazing junk. The bland-faced Chan needs all his nimble wits and fighting skills just to stay alive.
