Singapore, 1907. When a group of Singapore's leading citizens gathers at Government House to greet the the arrival of the Duke of Connaught it seems like a Somerset Maugham story come to life: businessmen, colonial officials, rubber planters, even the Sultan of Belantan has brought his fabled jewelled kris. When one of them is found brutally murdered the next morning suddenly it's Agatha Christie.
