After discovering the tomb of El Mokanna—the Veiled Prophet—and retrieving the precious relics buried there, the eminent archaeologist Sir Lionel Barton blows up the tomb. The heretic sect faithful to Mokanna interpret the fireball as their prophet’s second coming, and a violent uprising begins.

Meanwhile, the insidious Dr. Fu Manchu senses an opportunity to use the powerful relics for his own evil ends. The action stretches from Persia to Cairo, then back to London, including an extraordinary confrontation inside of the Great Pyramid. Along the way his opponents face Ogboni killers, mind-control drugs, dervishes, and a “ghost mosque.”—Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Ward, Arthur Henry

Author Image

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.
