Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe



There is one thing that can tip the scales of balance between the Chinese and Japanese factions fighting for control of their American turf: The thirteenth coin of Confucius! It’s been stolen and is now sewn into an overcoat. But which overcoat? There are so many in this incredible tale. Also involved in the labyrinthine plot are missing fingers—two of ’em—a literary con artist and his long-winded employee, and a host of other odd characters only Keeler could imagine.


This 476-page trade paperback contains the complete text of the original novel written in 1932. The story concludes in BEHIND THAT MASK.
