Molly Murphy's marriage to Daniel Sullivan is very imminent, & with it her promise to give up her dangerous career as a private investigator. But she's got a week before the actual wedding, so that should allow her to squeeze in one more case without his hearing about it, right? The case in question takes her into the heart of an area of the city she's not familiar with at all - Chinatown. A rich merchant hires her to find a precious object, which turns out to be the wife he recently had sent from home. The young woman apparently fled, in search of a better life. If Molly finds her, can she bring herself to return her to a situation little better than slavery? Things pick up even more when a murder happens & Molly finds herself in the thick of it. Can she solve everything in time for her wedding? Will Daniel even still want to marry her? The painting of turn-of-the-century Chinatown in New York City, as well as the general attitude towards it & its denizens, is very interesting.
