In the fourth in the series, Roger Law has arrived in Zhengzhou on his journey through China to see some of the many museums of the country. In this city, a major railway junction, he is amazed to discover a 'Chinese Louvre', a pyramid-shaped building housing some of the finest treasures of the country.

He also finds himself alongside almost the same number of Chinese tourists jostling to see a part of their history.
