1917 - A baby is abandoned on the steps of Singapore's famous Raffles Hotel. A childless English couple find the crying infant and adopt her. They sail back to England with the child in their arms.

1937 - Twenty years have passed. The house of Lim Chin Boon is in turmoil; the Master of the house is dying and has just received a letter from a young lady who could very well be the long-lost granddaughter from his first marriage. Emma West returns to Singapore to look for her family, only to find herself thrown into the midst of intrigue and mystery. There is a death in the family - a murder as it turns out. Whose death? And who is the culprit? Everyone in the household has a deadly motive. Sit back and be drawn into a web of conspiracy, deceit and love that stretches back in time and across continents.
