Overview

Although best known as the creator of the Fu-Manchu series of mystery novels, British author Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward (who usually wrote under the pseudonym Sax Rohmer) also penned a number of science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural novels. Long himself associated with the occult, Rohmer brings captivating depth and detail to his story of a dabbler in the supernatural whose dark interests spin out of control -- with tragic results.

The novel begins with the strange murder of Sir Michael Ferrara. A horrifying series of events follows, leading to a woman being used against her will to prey on her husband and then abducted and killed in inside a secret chamber in an old Egyptian pyramid. Only after a series of adventures and investigation is Antony Ferrara made powerless by Dr Bruce Cairn destroying the source of his control - the famed Book of Thoth - upon which Ferrara is no longer able to control the elemental he has summoned and is found as a burned corpse the day after.

He was perhaps best known for creating the super-villian, Dr. Fu Manchu -- a character who went on the become the subject of many films and in fact, much plundering. (Think about it for a moment: how many evil Chinese Mandarin masterminds have you heard tell of? Remember Ian Fleming's Dr. No? Flash Gordon's Ming the Merciless? Lo-Pan, from Big Trouble in Little China? Egg Fu, from Wonder Woman? Be careful. They're everywhere.)
