One day, a captain of a French cargo died mysteriously. What makes it more intriguing is the fact that the captain was wearing a female sarong cloth with a Lai Kinaree (Half  Human) embroidery. The Lai Kinaree is a kind of pattern that is prohibited for royal ladies in the palace. 

The mysterious death leads to a frenzy investigation that unites Lady Pudsorn, Monsieur Robert, and Aok Luang Indra Ratchpakdee to work together on resolving the case.

The mysterious death paves the way to many possibilities. It may trigger a war between the Ayutthaya Kingdom and France. And may prompt the Frenchy army to invade the Ayutthaya Kingdom to resolve the death of the captain.
