A dark night, ominous fog, a sense of mounting fear...Suddenly a shadow falls across your path - the shadow of Fu Manchu! Created by writer Sax Rohmer, the sinister criminal mastermind is one of the most memorable villains in literary history, personifying the fascination and fear with which many Westerners viewed the cultures of the Far East at the turn of the 20th century.
After appearing in a popular series of novels and short stories, Fu Manchu came to radio in 1939 in a series that many consider one of the best adventure serials ever produced. Starring Gale Gordon and Hanley Stafford, with Lou Marcelle in the title role, this pulp fiction classic can now be reintroduced to a whole new generation of listeners in 45 rare suspense-filled programs of high adventure.

As a fan of old time radio detective series both from the UK and US, this a gem. The only downside is that it does not appear to be the complete series with various episodes missing that sometimes make it harder to follow. That said the story is classic, the full cast performance excellent so overall I will happily add to my collection. One extra bonus is the sound quality of this.compared to others I have heard.
Thoroughly enjoyable story & performance with good use of the Sax Rohmer books .
It ends with the wish to seek another story.
