“The scene is a San Francisco townhouse filled with mementoes of Emily Boggs' days in China. The past has become present in the person of Anita Mumm. A long lost daughter? Or is she an impostor? Dinner turns deadly when Mrs Boggs' fortune cookie predicts no future…. for her.”
The suspects :
Chew Chow – Ms. Emily's cook and loyal servant for 25 years. His only humble request is to return to his homeland rich… and maybe at any cost.
Penny Sylan – A live-in nurse hired to care for Ms. Emily. Though she has a wonderful bedside manner, Penny has a history of losing her patients.
Axel Dent – Ms. Emily's chauffeur was driven crazy by her back seat driving. Did she push him to take the wrong turn on the road to life?
Lai Low – A young traditional Chinese maiden staying with Ms. Emily to learn western way. Lai has the face of innocence and purity but a heart filled with scorn.
Him Wong – A retired police detective from China who claims to have spent years searching for Ms. Emily's daughter. Has he accomplished the impossible or is he a master of illusion?
Anita Mumm – Ms. Emily's long-lost daughter… or is she? Anita bears a resemblance to the late Mr. Boggs, but is she really their missing heir or a clever con?
