If you enjoy oriental fiction and the writings of Sax Rohmer, then you may find this novel enjoyable. It was originally published in 1920 and features the evil villain Ah Sing, better known as the Yellow Spider.
One source has this to say:
“In The Yellow Spider…John Charles Beecham's villain is Ah Sing, the Yellow Spider, who is "cruel, cunning, ruthless, feared the length of the archipelago, the incarnation of all the savagery and mysticism of the Orient.
"His eyes were like a leopard's in the dark, two dots of green fire that scintillated but did not blink."
“Ah Sing uses a variety of Chinese, Tibetans, Malays, and Dyaks in an effort to drive the white men out of Asia, starting in Borneo. Poisonous plants and reptiles abound.”
I hope you enjoy it.
