A great mystery with more twists and turns than a five-dollar roller-coaster ride. Some really great characters like the brave Barrington and the much-abused mysterious "Lady in Gray." The villian is one of a kind, and the plot is hard to follow at times, but when the end comes, the heroes win, the bad guys are destroyed and the handsome fellows win their lovely ladies. Some of the events are a little predictable, but I can't remember when I enjoyed a mystery story more. When it comes to writing a great story, Fred White makes A. C. Doyle look like a kid with building blocks. You'll love it!
While many people automatically disparage Sax Rohmer for his rather racist outlook, especially regarding Jews, the fact remains that this is a first-class mystery story. Who is the mysterious Kazmah? Who is really cornering the illegal drug trade in London?
With truly unforgettable villains like the evil Mrs. Sin and the inscrutable Sin Sin Wa; and with great characters like the indomitable Inspector Kerry and the ever-wily Seton Pasha, this is a non-stop romp through the dark and seedy underworld of early twentieth-century London.
I think this is Sax Rohmer's best story, and is much more interesting than his much-touted Fu Manchu yarns. I would highly recommend this book.. . . And lighten up folks. The politically-correct mores of today's snobbish intellectuals were completely foreign to people who lived 100 years ago. This is the way it was, and it was usually a lot more exciting than our dopey era. (Pun intended.)
