The prolific author set up the perfect crime with no idea how to solve it and worked the case himself along with his fictional detective, Paul Harley. In Fire-Tongue, Harley sees a man die at the dinner table. (Something in the soup?) The detective's "uncanny sixth sense" tells him it was murder. But he can't prove it, let alone catch the killer. The trouble was, neither could Rohmer. And the story already had started running as a magazine serial! As Rohmer told it, he was desperately stumped when the magician and escape artist Houdini appeared at his door. Houdini slipped him - what else? - the secret way out. The story continues with all the clues, exotic suspects, slinky gowns, disguises, chases and resolutions that Rohmer's fans expected and still find in his fantastical fiction.

From the Back Cover:

"Fire-Tongue," he said. "Nicol Brinn." These are the last words of Sir Charles Abingdon, who was convinced he was being followed through the streets of London. Fortunately, the man who heard this his cryptic message was Paul Harley, an investigator Sir Charles hired to discover who was stalking him, who stole a manuscript from his study, and who called him away from his home on the night of his death. Paul Harley is no ordinary investigator. He'd done highly confidential work in the Near East and was "an unofficial field marshal of the forces arrayed against evildoers."

But that's not the only characteristic that sets Harley apart -- he's guided by his sixth sense. "It was an evasive, fickle thing, but was nevertheless the attribute which had made him an investigator of genius." Harley will need all of his talents -- and his extra-sensory perception -- to solve the riddle of the Fire-Tongue.

About the Author:

Arthur Henry Ward (1883 - 1959), better known as Sax Rohmer, was a prolific English novelist. He is best remembered for his series of novels featuring the master criminal Dr. Fu Manchu. He worked as a poet, songwriter and comedy sketch writer for music hall performers before creating the Sax Rohmer persona and pursuing a career writing weird fiction.
