The former Chinese mandarin, Fu Manchu, was part of (and possibly master of) a secretive Oriental organization dedicated to conquering the world, supported by a host of nefarious Middle Eastern and Oriental criminal organizations. His greatest nemesis was British investigator Sir Dennis Nayland Smith.

Fu Manchu was particularly known for his jade green hypnotic eyes: Nayland Smith was one of the few people who could meet his gaze without falling under their hypnotic power. The first of the popular mystery series introduces a pair of English detectives to their archnemesis, the diabolical Dr. Fu Manchu. Flavorful atmosphere, fast-paced action, and colorful characters enliven this classic of the genre. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Henderson | 2/4/2014

    " I liked the mystery and intrigue; however, the today's reader immediately notices the racism within. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monk Fish | 2/2/2014

    " Another great adventure for Nayland Smith "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mad_Maudie | 1/27/2014

    " This is my first foray into Fu Manchu, and I gotta say, I liked it. Yes, it rips off/imitates Watson, Holmes, and Moriarty in some ways, but I'm okay with that, and I'll be checking out more in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Quinn | 1/25/2014

    " Dated, racist and often really offensive, but also a wicked good page-turner with gruesome, nefarious plots and one of the truly great villians of all time. It's a cliche wrapped in a trope riddled with fear of "The Yellow Peril," and it still works wonderfully. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/22/2014

    " I must have read all of the Fu-Manchu books in little easily destroyed Pocket Books when I was in my early teens. I loved them! They are so dated but so much fun. I was really glad to see this first one reissued. I'll probably have to read the rest again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.D. Chandler | 1/19/2014

    " this really isn't a terrible book. it is racist, stupid and simple minded, but it is a good adventure story and kind of funin spite of it all. btw sax, hashish is not an opiate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dylan | 11/24/2013

    " Pretty racist, but kinda funny to read one of those old-timey action books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Davis | 7/17/2013

    " Listening to B.J. Harrison's reading of it ... which is fantastic. Yes it's old and it's got some non-P.C. talk in it (because it is super old) but it is a gosh-darned good adventure. Truly, Dr. Fu Manchu is a menace to all that is good, in epic proportions that astounded me with their imagination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean-claude Klein | 6/3/2013

    " I think I read it at 15 yeah. Shopping lots of fun, as long as you don't take it seriously. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manosthehandsoffate | 4/26/2013

    " Entertaining period adventure. Racism abounds including many references to the "yellow menace". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott | 12/4/2012

    " Not overwhelmed with this book, felt too episodey, lots of little bits of different stories rather than one single narrative. Does seem like a cheap knockoff of Sherlock Holmes, but not as smartly done. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 4/14/2012

    " A Sherlock Holmes rip-off written with quality lower than that of Edgar Rice Burroughs. It was at least fun to read (though an example of the rampant anti-asian racism of its time), and has just enough dime-novel interest to explain Dr. Fu-Manchu's repeated appearance in motion pictures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 stormhawk | 6/17/2011

    " A series of improbable events, to be sure, more of a grown up boy's own adventure. Clearly a product of its time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 emily | 2/18/2011

    " Why would you read this when you could just read Fantomas and be done with it, plus not feel awkward when you sit next to Asian people on the train? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher Vasquez | 12/1/2008

    " If anything racism only becomes funnier once it enters the public domain. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 2/20/2007

    " I just had to read this, because who has heard of Fu-Manchu? It was OK. Over the top bad guy. Over-reacting good guys. Racial stereotyping (not unexpected). I probably won't read any more Fu-Manchu novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 6/26/2004

    " Interesting view of China. Not sure much has changed since this story was written. "
