From Limehouse to Cairo download ebooks PDF *From Limehouse to Cairo, by Sax Rohmer* A CANNON BOOKS Mystery & Detective Collection. Sax Rohmer is a pseudonym for the British writer Arthur Sarsfield Ward (1883 – 1959). Success and popularity came to Rohmer in 1913 with the publishing of Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu, serialized from October 1912 to June 1913. Rohmer’s childhood fascination with Asia and Egypt and the occult combined with the public’s interest in reading detective and supernatural stories resulted in two well-received short story collections: Tales of Chinatown (10 stories, 1922) and Tales of Secret Egypt (12 stories, 1918) This book, From Limehouse to Cairo, gathers these twenty-two stories of murder, mystery and greed into a single collection. Part One is dominated by tales of Chief Inspector Kerry of the Criminal Investigation Department in New Scotland Yard, along with detective Paul Harley and his buddy Mr. Knox, as they immerses themselves in mysterious cases centered in Limehouse (East London’s Chinese district and underworld). This section also includes stories with elements of the supernatural: “Tcheriapin.” and “The Hand of the Mandarin Quong.” Part Two introduces us to Englishman Neville Kernaby, employee of Moses, Murphy &Co. (purveyors of fake antiquities), and to Abû Tabâh (clergyman, magician and government agent). Both men repeatedly find themselves crossing paths as they become wrapped up in the mysteries, perils and intrigue of British occupied Cairo. Part Three of this collection differs from the previous two sections in that Rohmer introduces adventures framed with mystical and supernatural themes. Rohmer’s writing is straight forward, fast paced and framed with a delightfully exotic atmosphere. Most of all, these stories are just downright entertaining. *From Limehouse to Cairo* (388 pages) TALES of CHINATOWN: The Daughter of Huang Chow, Kerry’s Kid, The Pigtail of Hi Wing Ho, The House of Golden Joss, Man with the Shaven Skull, The White Hat, Tcheriapin, The Dance of the Veils, The Hand of the Mandarin Quong, The Key of the Temple of Heaven.
