Stark House has been publishing some great omnibus volumes during the past couple of years. Sax Rohmer’s Batwing/Fire-Tongue is a perfect example of this. Back in the 1960s, I read Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu novels published by Pyramid. Plenty of action and secret cults and criminal master minds. I had copies of Batwing and Fire-Tongue but never got around to reading them. When Stark House published this omnibus volume a few months ago, I bought it and finally got around to reading it. Batwing is the better book. Paul Harley, a “consultant,” is hired by a wealthy Cuban who fears he will be assassinated. Harley fails in preventing the assassination, but launches an investigation to find out who killed his client. The plot is twisty and clever. Fire-Tongue features Paul Harley investigating the murder of a friend who many have been killed by a secret cult. Fire-Tongue reminded me of those Fu Manchu adventures. Both books are fun reading if you’re in the mood for some mystery and adventure.
