A century ago, Sax Rohmer introduced the world to a malevolent genius destined to become one of the most iconic fictional villains ever created: the fiendish Doctor Fu Manchu, “the Yellow Peril incarnate”.

In this first volume, we meet narrator Dr Petrie and his old friend Nayland Smith, formerly of Scotland Yard. Teaming up to investigate a series of assassinations, they pursue the evil Doctor from the opium dens of East London to the stately homes of England. But what is his ultimate plan? And can they trust the word of the Doctor’s mysterious slave – the “seductively lovely” Kâramanèh?

While Rohmer’s characters are a product of their time, the fun and excitement of his plots cannot be denied. The grudging mutual respect between Smith and Fu Manchu echoes that of Holmes and Moriarty, but the pace and thrills of these action-led stories set the style for later heroes from Bulldog Drummond to James Bond.



About The Book

You can purchase an Audio CD edition of the audiobook directly from Fantom Films by CLICKING HERE.




Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
