Dorus Noel spent years in the Far East, and had the torture scars to prove it. Now he was back in NYC, working undercover in Manhattan's Chinatown, confronting the most insidious crimes and criminals imaginable. Burks' Chinatown is a society of strange alliances, a place of dark menace and mystery, an urban nightmare of secret passageways riddling the district like rabbit warrens, a new world under the shadow of China's past. Collected for the first time are all 11 Dorus Noel stories from the pulp, All Detective Magazine (1933-34). Also included is extensive new information on All Detective and the fascinating career of pulp-writer Arthur J. Burks.
