The Slaves of Sumuru - Sax Rohmer 1952 - Herbert Jenkins, London - First Edition The second of Sax Rohmer’s delightfully entertaining novels featuring the beautiful mysterious female criminal mastermind Sumuru, the female equivalent of Fu Manchu who, apart from being dazzlingly beautiful apparently has "infernal hypnotic gifts".

Sumuru and her organisation are dedicated to the elimination of ugliness and violence from the world. Their dream is a world of beauty, run by beautiful women. Their methods are ingenious and ruthless, and this time ‘Our Lady’ is in New York at her headquarters where the swimming pool fitted out for her pet Barracuda - of course.
