As he travels around Asia solving crimes the venerable feng shui Master C.F. Wong is so much more than an interior design consultant. In this latest adventure he and other members of the Union of Industrial Mystics are introduced to a young woman who, all their mystical arts tell them, is doomed to die.
Trying to save her calls for desperate measures and their best efforts eventually send Mr Wong and his brash young intern Joyce McQuinnie to Sydney. There at the famed Opera House, a building with appalling feng shui, surprising things happen, much cross cultural chaos ensues and as you would expect with the inimitable Feng Shui detective the day is saved in most inventive ways.
