In turn-of-the-century San Francisco, Fung Ching (aka Fung, the Perfect, aka “Little Pete”) relates the story of the mysterious and sinister fortune-teller Quan Quock Ming, the “promoter of longevity and happiness.” Quan’s schemes involve slave-trading and drug-dealing, and lead to tong wars and murder.
