Taking place in the Greater London area, City of London Police officer Detective Inspector Harry Clayton comes across a woman named Eve, who gives him a Tang Dynasty bronze bracelet after a one night stand. While DI Clayton gets to investigating the murder of Triad boss Freddie Lau, he gets luck and more headway than the other CLP officers thanks to the bracelet's powers to grant him luck in finding significant clues to the case. He's later warned by Eve that while he gets good luck, others will have some misfortune happen to them as a means of balancing the yin and yang.

** Played with a bit. The CLP is on top of the case, starting with the murder of Lau. But with the help of Clayton's bracelet, he's able to get a major headstart on the murder case and the others that soon follow. While the others are stumped, his luck leads him straight to major clues.
