Originally published as a series of short stories in Colliers Weekly, this action-packed sequel to The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu features a number of fiendish doings, including kidnappings, snake murders, albino peacocks, killer apes, quicksand, a haunted house, rat torture, and more. 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?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/17/2013

    " Interesting pulp action from the 30s. The series has been considered controversial and racist towards Asians. Lots of over the top Western misconceptions of Orientalism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 6/7/2013

    " The second book in the Fu Manchu series is very much more of the same. once again very episodic as it was compiled from a series of magazine stories. Fu Manchu himself is rarely in it, but his influence pervades everywhere. "

    " Veers toward horror and unveils the awesome Six Gates of Joyful Wisdom. Smith is still a more manic if less analytical Holmes, but Petrie, always either besotted or terrified, is no Watson. "

    " Dated thriller.Rather corny "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 4/10/2011

    " Another book of essentially short stories about the chasing an non-capturing of Dr. Fu-Manchu. Mr. Smith and Dr. Petrie work hard at catching the evil Dr. but he outwits them time and again.

    I'll read the 3rd and last of the series eventually, but not right away. "

About the Author
Author Sax Rohmer

Sax Rohmer (1883–1959) was a prolific English mystery writer who was best known for creating the master criminal Dr. Fu-Manchu. Born Arthur Henry Ward in 1883 in Birmingham, England, to Irish parents, he received no formal schooling until he was about ten years old and worked in odd jobs before starting his writing career at age twenty. From the 1920s through the 1930s, Rohmer was one of the most widely read and highly paid magazine writers in the English language. After World War II, Rohmer moved to the United States and ultimately settled in White Plains, New York.
