Overview

The death of a seemingly respectable missionary draws Denis Nayland Smith and his devoted companion, Dr. Petrie, back into the web of the diabolical Dr. Fu Manchu. The investigation takes our heroes on a harrowing journey where they cross paths with the Si-Fan, a rival theosophist society and the famous French detective, Gaston Max.

Innocent children dangling above a crocodile pit, living snowmen, and Hell-spawned demons share the stage with mysterious Chinese villains, dastardly French Apaches, powerful sorcerers and refreshingly vulnerable heroes who are still capable of reassessing the values of the British Empire. The clash of Eastern and Western cultures contrasts sharply with the age-old battle between the forces of Good and Evil, as Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie grapple with the fragile truths that rule their world.

A suspenseful thriller that moves rapidly between London and Paris in December 1913, The Terror of Fu Manchu is William Patrick Maynard's first novel. This action-packed thriller is the first authorized Fu Manchu adventure in over twenty years and reintroduces Sax Rohmer's classic characters to a new generation of readers.
