While Jessica is in London to attend cousin Emma's show's royal premiere, Grady and his pregnant wide Donna are house-sitting for her. Meanwhile Carla Thyssen, Justin Hunnicut and 'the Cambodian', arrive in Cabot Cove. They are all criminals looking for the Szechuan dragon, a priceless statuette from the Forbidden City. The dragon was stolen from the Orient by a merchant captain. After the Cambodian threatens Grady but is scared away, the captain's body is found and Jessica's house turned upside-down by an intruder. The trio is also playing dangerous games with each-other. Although kept in the dark by Grady, Seth and sheriff Mort Metzger as long as they can, Jessica solves the case from Britain, yet surprisingly close to home, and Seth tricks the fiends. Written by
