Very enjoyable and humorous treatment of period life and excellent character/plot development although a little verbose in places. Be warned that in the second section there are significant gaps apparently missing from the manuscript used for translation. Nothing that can't be filled by logic but very annoying.
This was the first Sax Rhomer novel that I read and I was quite impressed. It has action, suspense and a good storyline that reminded me of some themes that were in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom especially regarding the Thugee clan, application of drugs and death by lava. A good read that inspired me to read more from this same author.
Why is this book even here. Totally senseless
