By Sax Rohmer
Dr. Fu-Manchu is the archetype of the Master Villain, a man of immense wealth and the desire for world conquest—the model for master criminals later seen in the James Bond novels and movies. Pitted against him is the English detective James Nayland Smith, helped by his chemist friend Dr. Petrie. This is the first of the Dr. Fu-Manchu mysteries that gripped the imaginations of readers in 1913 and made Rohmer’s novels a bestselling phenomenon of his time.
