(From the publisher):
Again the infamous archcriminal comes to renew his attack against the white race. Cunning and merciless as ever, Fu Manchu brings to the aid of his old forces a new and bitter determination to conquer his enemies, Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie, and he is assisted by a mysterious organisation - the Si-Fan - whose members are found in all parts of the earth, but behind whose every act can be dimly perceived the hand of Fu Manchu. To what desperate adventures this hand points, of the struggles, plots and narrow escapes with which each page bristles, the readers of Mr Rohmer's earlier books can well imagine.
