Publisher's Summary

"Imagine a person tall, lean and feline, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, a close-shaven skull, and long magnetic eyes of the true cat green. Invest him with all the cruel cunning of an entire Eastern race, accumulated in one giant intellect. Imagine that awful being and you have a mental picture of Dr. Fu-Manchu."

Dr. Fu-Manchu, the terrorizing and macabre master of a secretive Oriental organization, is dedicated to conquering the world. Fu-Manchu's greatest nemesis, British investigator Nayland Smith, is one of the few people who can meet Fu-Manchu's gaze without falling under his hypnotic power. It is up to Smith and his faithful companion, Dr. Petrie, to foil Dr. Fu-Manchu's diabolical plot.

In The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu, the lethal "Zayat Kiss," a red mark resembling the imprint of painted lips, is found among cocaine needle tracks on the dead body of Sir Chrichton Davey. The power of Fu-Manchu is far reaching as he employs a giant poisonous centipede, deadly toadstools and lethal green mists to murder and kidnap the great minds of the West. Is the beautiful Karamaneh the key to uncovering the evil Doctor's lair, or is she a pawn leading Smith and Petrie to their deaths?

Fabulously Politically Incorrect

Gotta love early 20th century pulp fiction. I will make certain peoples hair stand on end. I am not prejudice at all. Find the difference in tines funny. Story a little hard to follow and a might predictable. Narrator hard to understand at times.

Nope

This book was terrible to read as great expectations by Charles dickens. The main character is a fool and can only be described as Sherlock Holmes meats Ernest Goes to school. There doesn’t seem to be a plot line, as the entire story is just Dr. Fu Manchu outwitting everyone time and time again. I’m glad this was included in my membership and that I did not pay for it. The voice actor also left a lot to be desired. I’ve never given a negative review before, but this is terrible.
