A modern interpretation of a 1940s pulp. Shades of Doc Shadow and the yellow peril of Fu Manchu. IMHO this pulp was squashed like a tomto at birth.

*Pulp Warning* All my e-reading is pulp skewed so my reviews are too. Reader beware :) *Pulp Warning*

Overall: 3 stars (You may get something out of it)

First up, I didn't finish this book. It was just too much. This is, personally, a 2 star book - one that has major problems with the basic writing craft, regardless of the story being told. But I rated it a 3 because I think that if you are a hard core retro pulp fan you may get something out of this. But for everyone else I recommend you try some

I will simply provide a minor expanding of Grant Gardiner's otherwise accurate review of this book:

1. I did finish it. His review is in no way still invalid.

2. The main villain's master plan was still as unclear when I finished the book as to when I started it.

3. If you hate time jumps in your narrative, the split between part one and two toward the end will likely infuriate you. The others are little better.
