Sax Rohmer in his book, “Daughter of Fu-Manchu” Book Four 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. Fah Lo Suee — Daughter of Fu-Manchu As far as the world knows, Fu-Manchu is dead, leaving a vacuum within the league of assassins known as the Si-Fan. Into the void steps the daughter of the devil, whose machinations are every bit as deadly as those of her famous father. Afterword by Leslie S. Kilnger Fah Lo Suee is the danger this time around and she is the daughter of Dr. Fu-Manchu. The leadership of the Si-Fan, a Secret Oriental society intent on world domination, is taken over by her as she attempts to start World War III. Sir Denis Nayland Smith and his partner, Dr. Petrie encounter exotic poisons and mysterious Eastern death-cults as they travel in Russia and Turkey in their attempts to stop her. “Daughter 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. “Daughter 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.
