Synopsis

San Francisco private eye, returning to Hong Kong to visit his adoptive father, a wealthy Chinese merchant, becomes involved in a series of assassination attempts on the old man's life and uncovers a kidnapping and a multi-million dollar extortion plot that includes a shady tycoon with his own army, his Dragon Lady-type mistress, and a seedy character who's up to no good (Leslie Nielsen, Nancy Kwan and Anthony Newley, respectively). Soap opera star Terry Lester (from "The Young and the Restless") was hoping, apparently, that this pilot would be picked up for a weekly action series.
