The Yellow Claw
An illusive Chinese mastermind and his henchman have already killed one socialite and they hold a mysterious sway over many of London's elite. What is the secret of their power? Follow the trail with Sax Rohmer's famous detectives Gaston Max and Inspector Dunbar as they chase the international gang of hoodlums and their leader, the evil Dr. King.
The Golden Scorpion
His name was Fo-Hi, and he was the Oriental mastermind behind the greatest criminal organization the world has ever known. His plan: nothing less than world domination--and he will use any tool, from poisons to knives to beautiful women, to meet his sinister goals.
In The Golden Scorpion, Sax Rohmer has created a new Oriental super-villain to match his legendary Fu Manchu. Fans of the Fu Manchu books will find many favorite elements here, with action ranging from Cairo to London to China, from sinister opium dens to fog-shrouded streets to secret underground passages . . . and even more secret societies. And, of course, the brilliant and dedicated Scotland Yard detective who may be mankind's best hope!

A new force stalks the fog-shrouded streets of London, bringing death to its victims ... the mysterious Fire-Tongue! Psychic detective Paul Harley investigates, in this mystery classic with supernatural elements.
