y separately published work icon Doctor Nikola Guy Boothby , 1896 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.
