About Book

Book Description
1913. With frontispiece by Walter DeMaris. Rohmer (Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward) was a prolific English mystery writer, best known for his character the master criminal Dr. Fu Manchu and his opponents Denis Nayland Smith, Dr. Petrie (named after the Egyptologist Flinders Petrie) and the beautiful Karamaneh (the source of Petrie's daydreams). He also wrote under the name Michael Furey. The book begins: I was not the only passenger aboard the s.s. Mandalay who perceived the disturbance and wondered what it might portend and from whence proceed. A goodly number of passengers were joining the ship at Port Said. I was lounging against the rail, pipe in mouth, lazily wondering, with a large vagueness. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

The most mysterious case I have ever had anything to do with, sir, he said. The power of speech seemed to desert me. It was unthinkable that Deeping, with whom I had been speaking less than an hour ago, should now be no more; that some malign agency should thus murderously have thrust him into the great borderland.
