Book Excerpt: 
. . .I hesitated, momentarily, peering about me.

Apparently some four of five persons squatted and lay in the darkness about me. Some were couched upon rough wooden shelves ranged around the walls, others sprawled upon the floor, in the center whereof, upon a small tea-chest, stood a smoky brass lamp. The room and its occupants alike were indeterminate, sketchy; its deadly atmosphere seemed to be suffocating me. A sort of choking sound came from one of the bunks; a vague, obscene murmuring filled the whole place revoltingly.

Zarmi stood at the further end, her lithe figure silhouetted against the vague light coming through an open doorway. I saw her raise her hand, beckoning to us.

Circling around the chest supporting the lamp we crossed the foul den and found ourselves in a narrow, dim passage-way, but in cleaner air.

"Come," said Zarmi, extending her long, slim hand to me.

I'm sticking with my radio serial analogy. Some good scenes in this one (trapped on the hashish house rooftop with the fire raging, tunnel filled with deadly bugs, Fu's brain surgery). Nayland Smith seems wired to the point of overload and Petrie's still annoying. I think I like these better than...more

Routine and quaint. Exoticism is the only aspect of this novel that differentiates this story from so many others of the period.
Thin characterization and clumsy writing. But if you can reset your "quality control" and enjoy guilty pleasures on occasion you may enjoy.
