From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Once again, Lily and her aunt are on the trail of a mystery in their native San Francisco. Auntie, also known as Tiger Lil (a role she played in several movies) takes Lily, her brother Chris, and his girlfriend to the set of the television show "East Meets West" to meet the teen-heartthrob Clark Tom. Once there, the group is cast as extras in a scene. Unknown to the actors on the set, someone has put real bullets in the gun that is fired at Clark during the filming. Suspicion is cast on the actor using the weapon and Auntie promises the young man's grandfather that she will try to prove his innocence. During their investigation, the characters travel about town and learn a bit about their Chinese heritage, information and details that will also hold readers' interest. Both fans of the series and those new to it will enjoy this well-written mystery.
