Fu-Manchu summons a poisonous cat, fiery hands of death, and a mummy to hunt down the Reverend Eltham and obtain the coveted name of a secret agent in China. Fu-Manchu's nemeses Neyland Smith and Dr. Petrie are witness to the tortures of the wire jacket and Six Gates of Joyful Wisdom and narrowly escape death on the moors of West England. And the return of the beautiful Karamaneh raises the question of whether her intent is to aid the nefarious doctor or Smith and Petrie. Can the relentless and cruel Fu-Manchu be stopped?
Fu-Manchu is trapped, cornered in London and cut-off from his resources, including the elixir vitae that grants him eternal life. But under the Thames, the devil doctor practices the dark art of sorcery, and it will be up to Nayland Smith and Scotland yard to stop him. But Fu-Manchu may possess the key to victory, when he kidnaps Dr. Petrie's wife, Fleurette!
Across the sands of Egypt, Nayland Smith pursued Fah Lo Suee, the deadly daughter of Fu-Manchu. She was possessed of all her father's subversive secrets and driven by his unquenchable thirst for power. She had pillaged the tomb of the Black Ape for the key to its ancient mysteries - and therefore leadership over all the evil cults of the East. No one could stop her - unless it was Fu Manchu himself!
Dr. Petrie's expertise is called upon when a deadly plague begins to ravage the French Riveria. Accompanying him on his trip is his friend, the botanist Alan Sterling. As Petrie and Sir Dennis Nayland Smith struggle to contain the horror, Sterling cannot stop thinking of the mysterious Fleurette, unaware that the beautiful girl he chanced upon was raised by the emperor of evil himself, Dr. Fu Manchu.
Dr Fu-Manchu is back once again! His very existence seemingly proves him immune from natural laws, a deathless incarnation of evil! Brand new editions of the world-famous novels featuring one of the most iconic characters of the 20th Century, standing alongside Sherlock Holmes and James Bond. And this time the Devil Doctor is not alone. Sir Denis Nayland Smith and his associates learn of a deadly organization that stalks the shadows. Their goal is to undermine the balance of global power, and they allow no one to stand in their way. They are the terrorist assassins known as the Si-Fan. "The hand that held my arm was bony and clawish; I could detect the presence of incredibly long finger nails--nails long as those of some buried vampire of the black ages! Choking down a cry of horror, I opened my eyes... and looked into the face of my guide. It was Dr. Fu-Manchu!"
This final volume in the Fu-Manchu collection brings together some unpublished manuscripts, and stories which have previously appeared only in magazine form, by the late Sax Rohmer. The long title novella and three others feature the dastardly Dr. Fu-Manchu - and, of course, his unremitting opponent, Sir Denis Nayland Smith. There are eight more stories in this book, no less characteristic of Sax Rohmer's art.
Four brilliant men have died mysteriously--and the only clue is the carved tail of a golden scorpion left beside their bodies. The man behind the horror calls himself "The Scorpion," and he is clearly a man of superior cunning. When the finest detectives of France and England--Gaston Max and Inspector Dunbar--join forces to stop the Scorpion before he can add a fifth victim to his list, the twisting trail takes them from the haunts of London's underworld to the seamy opium dens of Chinatown--and from there into the "Lair of the Scorpion."
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 greatest genius whom the powers of evil have put on the earth for centuries", Fu Manchu - an agent of the Si-Fan - seeks to climb the ladder of the secret society's hierarchy, then to pave the way for conquest of his native land of China. He is pursued by Commissioner Sir Denis Nayland Smith and his compatriot Dr. Petrie, the narrator of these fast-paced, mood-drenched adventures.
