The second installment in the sinister exploits of Dr. Fu-Manchu Two years after the insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu brought Britain to the brink of destruction, the reverend J. D. Eltham anxiously awaits his return. The devil doctor is presumed dead, but Eltham is an old China hand, rumored to have brought about the Boxer uprisings, and he knows that cheating death might just be the least of Fu-Manchu’s accomplishments. When the reverend disappears, Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie know that the evil genius has struck again. Once again, Smith and Petrie brave death—by torture, quicksand, and poisoned cat—to foil an outrageous plot. The reappearance of the beautiful and mysterious Karamaneh, agent of Fu-Manchu and bewitcher of Petrie’s heart, proves that love might just be the most dangerous poison of all. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
