Summary (From the publisher):

Surely not since Poe has there appeared a more striking power for the delineation of mystery and its unraveling than Sax Rohmer's.

Dr. Fu Manchu is the craftiest and most malignant Chinaman that has ever appeared in fiction, and the finesse he employs in baffling Nayland Smith, Detective, is worthy of a better cause. If you will read the first three pages of this story we are certain you will not be satisfied until you have read the entire story.
