Written by Sax Rohmer
Introduction by Will Murray

Best known for his thrilling tales of Dr. Fu Manchu, author Sax Rohmer also penned the adventures of the resourceful Major Bernard de Treville, known better as “The Crime Magnet,” a roving adventurer who encounters intrigue in every corner of the globe. With his companion, Digger, he follows in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Originally published in This Week magazine between 1937 to 1945, only a handful of these rare tales have ever been reprinted. Here, for the first time, are all fifteen short stories, plus the exciting serial, “The Panama Plot.” Accompanied by an all-new introduction by Will Murray, historian of popular literature, this is the most significant Sax Rohmer collection in decades. Authorized by the Rohmer estate.
