Dr. Fu Manchu is on the run but still up to his nefarious schemes. He captures Dr. Petrie’s daughter Fleurette and takes her to London where Alan Sterling, her fiancé, and Nayland Smith track him down. Fu Manchu is cut off from his Si-Fan resources so he comes up with a quick money making plot; turning lead into gold. Burmese stranglers, British seamen, abandoned mansions, a roaring furnace, explosives, and an underground lair all play a part. Also we get the return of our very old friend John Ki. And Fah Lo Suee falls in love yet again. . . .—Stuart Dean @ Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Ward, Arthur Henry
Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward (15 February 1883—1 June 1959), better known as Sax Rohmer, was a prolific English novelist. He is best remembered for his series of novels featuring the master criminal Dr. Fu Manchu.
Born in Birmingham, he had an entirely working-class education and early career before beginning to write. His first published work was in 1903, the short story The Mysterious Mummy for Pearson’s Weekly. He made his early living writing comedy sketches for music hall performers and short stories and serials for magazines.
His first Fu Manchu novel, The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu, was serialized from October 1912—June 1913. It was an immediate success with its fast-paced story of Denis Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie facing the worldwide conspiracy of the “Yellow Peril”. The Fu Manchu stories, together with his more conventional detective series characters—Paul Harley, Gaston Max, Red Kerry, Morris Klaw, and The Crime Magnet, made Rohmer one of the most successful and well-paid authors of the 1920s and 1930s.
His final success came with a series of novels featuring a female variation on Fu Manchu, Sumuru.
