Sax Rohmer in his book, “re enter fu manchuRe-Enter Fu-Manchu” Book Twelve 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…”

The 1950s—the era of the Cold War. The USSR is poised to begin the space race by launching the Sputnik satellite, Mao Zedong rules Communist China, and the greatest global fear is of the atomic bomb.

Missing for nearly a decade, Fu-Manchu re-emerges in an attempt to wrest control of China from the accursed Communists. Nayland Smith pursues his enemy from London to Cairo to New York, determined to end his reign of terror. But there’s something amiss with Smith—something his allies need to uncover before it’s too late.

If you really think about it Fu-Manchu is the very essence of evil. He is out for his personal gain only. And his schemes, and manipulations usually involve killings, thefts and destruction. This time up he wants to rule China rather than the communists. Nayland Smith is, once again, out to stop himBrian Merrick is a young grad student who is enlisted by Smith to help him. And now the game begins. Adding to Fu-Manchu’s deviltry is that he created a duplicate of Nayland Smith and now no one knows, including us, if he is the real one or the plastic surgery duplicate. This ups the thriller quotient considerably as all stability is pulled out from under us and everybody becomes suspect. “Re-Enter Fu-Manchu” will keep you on the edge of your seat, flipping pages as fast as you can read them just trying to keep up with this exciting mystery thriller. As always I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
