Inglaterra, anos treinta. Christopher Banks se ha convertido en el mas celebre detective de Londres. Pero hay un enigma que es incapaz de resolver y del que el mismo es protagonista: cuando era nino y vivia en Shanghai con su familia, sus padres desaparecieron misteriosamente, acaso secuestrados por la mafia china por un asunto relacionado con el trafico de opio. El, que crecio como un huerfano, tiene recuerdos vagos y contradictorios de lo que realmente sucedio. Pero la ausencia de sus padres, de los que ni siquiera sabe con seguridad si estan vivos o muertos, le atormenta.
