The Detective of the Impossible and Java travel to China to come to the aid of an old friend, the medium Milly. The British secret services are looking for an ancient artifact, a casket that used to belong to the “Widow Empress” in the early Twentieth century. But why is it so precious? End why does the “Black Duke”, Tsai Lan, want to get hold of it? The answer to the mystery is buried in the horrors of an old English lord’s memories, and in the acts of violence committed during the bloody “Boxers’ Revolt” way back in the year 1900!
