Sir Gregory Hale returns to London from Mongolia with a mysterious Tulun-Nur chest that holds the “key to India,” a vital secret of Dr. Fu-Manchu’s notorious Si-Fan organization. Unfortunately, Hale is murdered before he is able to disclose the secret to Nayland Smith. The Burmese police commissioner and Dr. Petrie launch a mission to affront the brilliant but deadly master criminal before he succeeds in his malignant and fantastic plot to take over the world. 

In pursuit of the “Devil Doctor,” Smith and Petrie must escape numerous assassination attempts and battle an insect army. They are faced with multiple mysteries, including the Zagazig Code, the Shrine of Seven Lamps, and the Chapel of Satan. The future of the free world depends on the success of Smith and Petrie defeating the villainous hand of Fu-Manchu.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 6/30/2013

    " The third Fu Manchu novel carries the story forward in the usual series of 20-page, almost self-contained segments. Rohmer can certainly wring variations out of death traps, assassins, mysterious women, waterfront opium dens and the like, although this novel ends rather unsatisfyingly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 2/3/2009

    " Classic detective fiction from the early 20th century, though you have to make allowances for the lack of sensitivity to ethnic diversity which prevailed at that time "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josephine | 7/24/2008

    " Rather like a fever dream one has after falling asleep over a Sherlock Holmes story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tabitha Ormiston-Smith | 7/8/2005

    " A real ripping yarn. Nayland Smith and Dr Petrie are el cheapo versions of Holmes and Watson. Anyone who likes Biggles will adore this book. "
