Book description
A torrid, beautiful woman from the East, she loved crime for its own sake - and killed men as wantonly as she provoked them.

SUMURU loved crime for its own sake - she commanded men and they obeyed - and she killed them as readily as she charmed them.

THE UNKNOWN MAN brought into the little Surrey hospital suffering from multiple injuries - until he was snatched from under the noses of the cops, and disappeared into the blue.

THE PUMA - ravening beast of man - kept in check by lash and chain.

INSPECTOR GILLIGAN of Scotland Yard breaks through the web of evil woven by the weirdly beautiful oriental woman, to find unspeakable horror at its centre.

THIS MASTERPIECE OF THE MACABRE RANKS WITH THE BEST EVER WRITTEN BY SAX ROHMER, ONE OF THE REALLY GREAT NAMES OF MYSTERY FICTION.
