Overview
Wise and inscrutable Charlie Chan is summoned to a mysterious secluded castle deep in California Mojave Desert, to investigate a brutal murder that may have been committed by a descendant of the infamous Borgia family. But he soon realizes that everyone present is a suspect, including himself, and since the castle has no means of communication with the outside world...not a single person is safe!
