A Bid for Fortune A Bid for Fortune ; Or, Dr Nikola's Vendetta, Guy Boothby , single work novel crime

'With money in his pocket after making his fortune in the South Seas, Richard Hatteras has London at his feet. Running afoul of the deadly Dr Nikola, however, was the worst thing he could do. Soon, young Dick is swept up into a maelstrom of blackmail, hypnotism, deceit and murder, where his betrothed is in danger, his potential father-in-law’s reputation is on the brink of ruination, and his very sanity is at stake. What can a two-fisted adventurer do against the vast and cold intellect that is Dr Nikola?'

Doctor Nikola, Guy Boothby , single work novel crime

In "A Bid for Fortune" Mr. Boothby told us of the superhuman efforts exerted by Dr. Nikola to obtain possession of a certain little Chinese wand, and which was apparently valueless except as a curiosity. The reason for the unscrupulous doctor's pertinacity is not apparent until we read the sequel, to which the name of the hero has been given. In "Dr. Nikola" the doctor and one Wilfred Bruce, a young Australian, go through a series of "hair-raising" adventures in their endeavour to get to a certain Buddhist monastery In the heart of China. There exist in that monastery certain treasures which Dr. Nikola is very anxious to lay his hands upon, and possessed of which he can do more than any other man.

Pharos the Egyptian, Guy Boothby , single work novel

'Mr. Boothby has proved himself a master of the art of story-telling from the point of view of the reader who asks for a succession of stirring events, a suspicion of mystery, and an interest not only maintained but culminating. It would be unfair to explain the extraordinary character of Pharos, or to do more than allude to the series of strange adventures wherein he plays a leading part. It is enough to assure Mr. Boothby's readers of delightful thrills and an interest which this vivid romancer never permits to flag.'
