KIRKUS REVIEW

No heavy-lidded Oriental inscrutability here but lots of blatant sex and some torture scenes which would raise the pigtail on Fu Manchu's head (the press has established their likelihood.) Curt Stone, a free-lancer, is hired by American Intelligence to find the cache in a cave where a fortune was hidden during WW II, known only to one Tashiro. He is killed by the Chinese Communists and so is his young daughter retrieved from a cheap cabaret. Her death is worse than fate... Mr. Seward has been a cowhand, linguist, intelligence officer and business man and he knows his Orient, but he's not much of a writer.
