Meet the ultimate villain, a Chinese master criminal of untold wealth, intellect, and occult powers whose goal is nothing less than world conquest: he is Dr. Fu-Manchu, a master of disguise who commands the criminal societies, or tongs, of Asia. His foil is Denis Nayland Smith, a plodding Englishman with vague connections to Scotland Yard, and his chemist friend, Dr. Petrie. Can Smith and Petrie rely on pluck and luck to thwart the evil doctor’s dastardly plans?
A masterpiece of suspense, this 1913 classic is the first in the bestselling series of more than a dozen Dr. Fu-Manchu mysteries, several of which inspired popular film adaptations. The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu introduces a cast of colorful characters in a gripping, atmospheric narrative.
This inexpensive edition of the first Fu-Manchu mystery will delight detective-story aficionados as well as readers who enjoy a flavorful adventure novel.
