THE MANDARIN'S SAPHIRE

An amateur mid-western detective takes the lead when the police are baffled by a death from mysterious agency of a retired captain. The clues involve his ward, a beautiful Eurasian, her Chinese mother, a degenerate doctor, etc. Ultimately, the culprit is allowed to escape -- the crime justified. A plush tale -- third rate.
