Rohmer, Sax (1916) The Return of Dr. Fu-Manchu




The Return of Dr. Fu-Manchu, is the second of the fourteen Fu-Manchu books written by Sax Rohmer, pseudonym for Henry Sarsfield Ward. Follow the adventures of Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie as they battle the arch-villain Dr. Fu-Manchu in this example of classic pulp fiction.

Smith went racing down the stairs like a man possessed. Heavy with such a foreboding of calamity as I had not known for two years, I followed him—along the hall and out into the road. The very peace and beauty of the night in some way increased my mental agitation. The sky was lighted almost tropically with such a blaze of stars as I could not recall to have seen since, my futile search concluded, I had left Egpyt. The glory of the moonlight yellowed the lamps speckled across the expanse of the common. The night was as still as night can ever be in London. The dimming pulse of a cab or car alone disturbed the stillness.
