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. 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.
