Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward (1883-1959), better known as Sax Rohmer, was a prolific English weird fiction and occult writer. After working as a poet, songwriter, and comedy sketch writer in Music Hall, Ward turned to weird fiction, writing under the pseudonym Sax Rohmer. His best known work included his archetypal Chinese supervillain and criminal genius Dr. Fu Manchu, which first appeared in print in 1910. Dr. Fu Manchu proved to be an enduring part of Rohmer's work and made him one of the most successful and well-paid writers of the 1920s and 1930s.
FIRE TONGUE includes an impossible murder, an occult detective tale, and a tale within a tale -- with a solution suggested by Harry Houdini. Second in the Paul Harley mystery series.
