Sax Rohmer in his book, “shadow fu manchu book coverThe Shadow of Fu-Manchu” Book Eleven in the Dr. Fu-Manchu series published by Titan Books brings us new adventures of Sir Denis Nayland Smith 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…”

World War II has ended. The United States is locked in a Cold War with the Eastern Bloc. It’s the time of mutually assured destruction, yet the atomic bomb isn’t the only weapon to fear. And the Soviets have another enemy with whom to contend.


Dr. Morris Craig has developed an energy weapon with the potential for unlimited destruction—whoever controls it could tip the balance of global power. The quest for Craig’s invention once again brings Fu-Manchu to New York City, his mission to prevent the Communists from acquiring the device. But who can keep it out of the hands of the Devil Doctor himself?

Dr. Morris Craig has developed a new energy weapon, a kind of disintegrator that can also be used as a potential source of limitless energy. And now the game begins. Not only does Fu-Manchu want it for himself he also does not want anyone else to have it. “The Shadow of Fu-Manchu” is a thriller as almost everyone’s life is in great peril. 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 a runaway roller coaster ride story. There is plot, action, a cliffhanger, out of danger, more plot, more action then another cliffhanger all throughout the book. This is one super exciting book. “The Shadow 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 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.
