"Good news: Fu Manchu, Dr Petrie and Nayland Smith are back with a new and very exciting novel in an exotic setting - Egypt in 1917...One night as World War I is reaching a crucial stage, Petrie receives a mysterious and beautiful Oriental patient at his Cairo home who insists on stripping for a physical examination, and then pulls the hapless doctor down on the couch with her. On the timely and unexpected arrival of Nayland Smith saves him from an embarrassing position. Summoned to Cairo by British Intelligence to solve the strange disappearance of a British scientist who had been working on a top-secret project known as the Midnight Sun, Nayland Smith quickly identifies Petrie's seductress - who makes her escape - as Fah Lo Suee, Fu Manchu's beautiful but treacherous daughter, and deduces that she had been trying to hypnotize Petrie. There is no question that Fu Manchu is responsible - and the game is quickly afoot."
