Meet the Author

Born Arthur Henry Ward in 1883, Sax Rohmer was four years old when Sherlock Holmes appeared in print. A journalist, poet, comedy sketch writer, and songwriter, he turned to fiction, and the first Fu-Manchu story, The Zayat Kiss, appeared in The Story-Teller magazine in October, 1912. That story became the beginning of the novel The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu, and fourteen more followed, making Rohmer one of the most successful novelists of the 1920s and 1930s. Fu-Manchu has been featured in radio, television, comic strips, and comic books. In film he has been portrayed by such actors as Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, John Carradine, Peter Sellers, and Nicolas Cage. Rohmer died in 1959, a victim of an outbreak of the type A influenza known as the Asian flu.

    Sax Rohmer in his book, ┬┐The Mask of Fu-Manchu┬┐ Book Five in the

    Sax Rohmer in his book, “The Mask of Fu-Manchu” Book Five 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.

    After discovering the tomb of El Mokanna – the Veiled Prophet – and retrieving the precious relics buried there, the eminent archaeologist Sir Lionel Barton blows up the tomb. The heretic sect faithful to Mokanna interpret the fireball as their prophet’s second coming, and a violent uprising begins.

    Meanwhile, the insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu senses an opportunity to use the powerful relics for his own evil ends. The action stretches from Persia to Cairo, then back to London, including an extraordinary confrontation inside of the Great Pyramid. Along the way his opponents face Ogboni killers, mind-control drugs, dervishes, and a “ghost mosque.”

    Afterword by Leslie S. Kilnger

    “The Mask 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. I think Mr. Rohmer was at the top of his craft when he wrote this adventure. And the action takes us all over The Middle East then back to London. 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. “The Mask 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.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Titan Books. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

    Classic Sax

    If you can get past the annoying Sir Lionel Barton, you should enjoy this classic Dr. Fu Manchu mystery.
