In Hollywood, an old Chinese game, mah-jongg, is an obsession, and caterer Madeline Bean and her partner Wesley Wescott plan a gonzo Chinese New Year banquet. But no one expects to find one of the players dead. Meanwhile, precious objects, including an antique mah-jongg set, are discovered in the historic mansion Wesley is restoring.
From the Publisher:

Mah-Jongg?

Yep. In hip Hollywood, that kitsch old game is fast becoming the next "new" obsession --and that calls for a party! Madeline Bean and her charming partner Wesley Westcott are determined to throw a gonzo Chinese New Year banquet. But among the hot mah-jongg tiles, the steamy dim sum, and the frosty Singapore slings, no one expects to find one of the players ice-cold dead!

Meanwhile, in one of the historic celebrity mansions that Wesley is restoring as a sideline, a well-aimed crowbar uncovers a stash of precious objects -- including an antique mah-jongg set. As Madeline pieces together how these two events are connected, she must separate the yin from the yang to uncover a killer. It doesn't take a fortune cookie to spell it out. There is always a price to pay...whether gambling at mah-jongg -- or murder.

Annotation:
Caterer Madeline Bean and her friend Wesley Westcott find a valuable old mah jong set, which is soon stolen. Then a murder takes place at a mah jong party Madeline is catering. What's the meaning of all this mah jong madness? Madeline and Wes decide to find out.
