About this title

Synopsis:

Sax Rohmer was the pseudonym used by Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward. Ward was a British novelist born in 1883. He is most remembered for his series of novels featuring the master criminal Dr Fu Manchu. Fire-Tongue was published in 1921. This Paul Harley mystery begins, "Some of Paul Harley's most interesting cases were brought to his notice in an almost accidental way. Although he closed his office in Chancery Lane sharply at the hour of six, the hour of six by no means marked the end of his business day. His work was practically ceaseless. But even in times of leisure, at the club or theatre, fate would sometimes cast in his path the first slender thread which was ultimately to lead him into some unsuspected labyrinth, perhaps in the underworld of London, perhaps in a city of the Far East."

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.
