Ah, Petrie. I'm an idiot, an imbecile and an incompetent dolt. Did you come all the way to...The Castle of Fu Manchu • 1969
I'm an idiot, an imbecile and an incompetent dolt.
Did you come all the way to Scotland Yard to tell me that?
I'm terribly excited but I just found it. It's been on my own bookshelf all these years.
Professor A. G. Heracles.
The world's top authority.
Well, I dare say, Petrie, buy would you explain why this book of yours has suddenly become so important?
Because, his theory may give us the clue that we are desperately searching for. Well, you see, he has a theory, that when the chemical properties of ordinary water are such that they lend themselves to transformation and... tampered with... and he goes on to say here... somewhere... yes, here we are: "water, enriched with a crystallized essence, prepared by the methods which are not as yet practicable to man, might dramatically change its temperature to a cold so intense as to be uncontrollable." There, now, provided that you've got sufficient quantity of water the pressure will build up, which will eventually, with the crystals, become, as he says, uncontrollable!
But these crystals of which he writes, what would they be composed of?
Possibly a derivative of opium.
