Imagine a person tall, lean and feline, with a brow
like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, a close-shaven skull, and long magnetic
eyes of the true cat green. Invest him with all the cruel cunning of an entire
Eastern race, accumulated in one giant intellect. Imagine that awful being and
you have a mental picture of Dr. Fu-Manchu.
Dr. Fu-Manchu, the
terrorizing and macabre master of a secretive Oriental organization, is
dedicated to conquering the world. Fu-Manchu’s greatest nemesis, British
investigator Nayland Smith, is one of the few people who can meet Fu-Manchu’s gaze
without falling under his hypnotic power. It is up to Smith and his faithful
companion, Dr. Petrie, to foil Dr. Fu-Manchu’s diabolical plot.
In The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu, the lethal “Zayat Kiss,” a red mark resembling the
imprint of painted lips, is found among cocaine needle tracks on the dead body
of Sir Crichton Davey. The power of Fu-Manchu is far-reaching as he employs a
giant poisonous centipede, deadly toadstools, and lethal green mists to murder
and kidnap the great minds of the West. Is the beautiful Karamaneh the key to
uncovering the evil doctor’s lair, or is she a pawn leading Smith and Petrie to
their deaths? Download and start listening now!
