Summary (From the publisher):

At midnight, in the study of an eccentric London novelist, two yellow hands leap out of the zone of darkness into the moonlight, dealing instant and silent death to a strange woman who has sought refuge there.

"Mr. King," the name on a scrap of paper held in her convulsive grasp, is the starting point in the long pursuit of the mysterious criminal whose uncanny cleverness rivals the craft Oriental resourcefulness of the well-remembered Dr. Fu Manchu.

The author, an enthusiastic student of obscure Oriental cults and the history of sorcery, heightens the adroit surprises and dramatic turns of his speeding story with master touches of uncanny atmosphere that will fascinate and astonish the most jaded reader of mysteries.
