Description by OLDIES.com:
Boris Karloff stars in the title role of Mr. Wong, Detective
, the first of six Mr. Wong
mysteries that were based on the work of author Hugh Wiley.
When the life of industrialist Simon Dayton (John Hamilton) is threatened , he makes an appointment with the one man who might be able to help him, the Oxford-educated Oriental sleuth Mr. James Lee Wong (Karloff). When Dayton is found murdered before he can keep his appointment, Police Captain Sam Street (Grant Withers) enlists Wong's help in solving the murder.
Suspicion falls on a business contact who is quickly arrested and charged with Dayton's murder. But as the investigation continues, Dayton's remaining business partners both turn up dead. It will take all of Mr. Wong's abilities to discover why a piece of broken glass was found near each victim and to discover the identity of the real killer.
