MR.WONG
CIGARETTE OF DEATH
(Originally published as The Room of Death – Collier’s, April 13th 1940)
by Hugh Wiley
“One cigarette before I die!” was James Lee’s plea. To the Russian it seemed unlikely that a smoke ring could tighten into a noose.
Armchair adventure may be quite beguiling enchanting and remote from reality, or it may be so harsh, frightening and immediate that it seems to be happening right before your eyes in a room hazy with gunsmoke. But when a story is written with unsparing honesty the very harshness takes on an exciting quality we wouldn’t trade for all the security on earth. Hugh Wiley who ruggedly realistic crime yarns featuring the spirited James Lee have appeared frequently in COLLIER’S scores here a veritable double bull’s-eye.
(Publisher’s note: This is a Cold War rewrite of a World War II story. See “The Room of Death” for the original. References to Japan have changed to Russia/The Soviet Union. Also, numerous conversational transitions have changed.)
4100 Words

This edition includes the illustrations and covers to Collier's magazine for all 6 stories.

With the success of Fox's Charlie Chan and Mr. Moto movies, Monogram decided they wanted a piece of that action and hired Boris Karloff to play Hugh Wiley's Detective James Lee in a series of Mr. Wong movies.
