    Sax Rohmer in his book, “The Hand of Fu-Manchu” Book Three in the Dr. Fu-Manchu series published by Titan Books brings us new adventures of Sir Denis Nayland Smith, Dr. Petrie and, of course, the evil Dr. Fu-Manchu.

    From the Back Cover: “Imagine a person, tall, lean, and feline, high-shouldered, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan…”

    London, 1913—the era of Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, and the Invisible Man. A time of shadows, secret societies, and dens filled with opium addicts. Into this world comes the most fantastic emissary of evil society has ever known… Fu-Manchu.

    A sealed box and murder most foul call Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie back from distant Egypt to the fog-enshrouded streets of London. There they discover that Dr. Fu-Manchu is an agent of a vast and deadly organization–one which will stop at nothing to achieve its ruthless goals.

    Afterword by Leslie S. Kilnger

    He’s back! Dr. Fu-Manchu returns and this time the danger is even greater for Sir Denis Nayland Smith and his partner, Dr. Petrie than their previous run in with him. Now they are the target of the deadly Si-Fan, Secret Oriental society intent on world domination. Dealing with this tricky Doctor is like playing a high level chess game. Move, counter move, first Fu-Manchu is on the offensive and it takes all the skills of our heroic duo to keep up with him. Then Smith and Petrie take on the offensive and just when you think they have him he escapes to keep the game going. “The Hand of Fu-Manchu” is a thriller, no doubt about it. Smith and Petrie’s lives are in great danger from page one and the danger grows with the body count. Just when you think you might know where the story is heading Mr. Rohmer tosses in another turn which you take at high-speed on two wheels. Mr. Rohmer writes in a breathless style that will keep you on the edge of your seat, flipping pages as fast as you can read them just trying to keep up with runaway roller coaster ride story. Yes, this book was originally written in 1917 and the characterization of Dr. Fu-Manchu is completely racist but fits perfectly with the atmosphere at the time they were written. If you can put that aside “The Hand of Fu-Manchu” is the perfect read to get your adrenalin going and root for the good guys to conquer a menace that is almost supremely evil. This is a wild ride read and I recommend it highly. This is a high-octane series and I am so glad that Titan Books is bringing the whole series back. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
