Tibet, 1927. Intrepid explorer Doctor Ardan is taken prisoner by the diabolical Natas, who has discovered the secret of making gold through nuclear fusion, and rules over a city of slaves whom he controls with an unholy brand of leprosy. Can Doc Ardan, with the aid of beautiful Louise Ducharme, thwart the Oriental Mastermind's evil schemes and escape from the City of Gold and Lepers? The City of Gold and Leperswas a prophetic science fiction / adventure novel written by Guy d'Armen in 1928, probably inspired by Fu-Manchu (1913) and predating Doc Savage (1933).
