This special omnibus volume brings back into print The Menace of Li-Sin and The Vengeance of Li-Sin, Gerald Verner's two novels featuring the character Li-Sin, whose mission is to retrieve the sacred Black Idol and wreak revenge on its desecrators. The crimes of Li-sin and his gang present the self-appointed sleuth Dr. James Hartley, along with Scotland Yard and the local constabulary, with a remarkable challenge.

This Dancing Tuatara Press edition is introduced by John Pelan, and Chris Verner, the author's son, has contributed an in-depth Afterword and a comprehensive Bibliography of Gerald Verner's writings, including the many books originally published under pseudonyms.
