A bid for fortune, or, Dr. Nikola's vendetta by Guy Boothby( )

32 editions published between 1895 and 2017 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London, the decadent 1890s: a mysterious meeting is called in a private room of the sumptuous Imperial Hotel. The sinister Dr Nikola is presiding, but what masterpiece of crime is he planning? Meanwhile, in Sydney, Australia, a rugged young man rescues a girl from attack by ruffians. These two events are skilfully woven together in one of the classics of late Victorian crime fiction. Before his tragically early death, Boothby lived his life equally in the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and in this novel he creates a narrative that moves breathtakingly from the West and East Ends of London to a thrilling climax in the South Seas via Egypt and Australia
Doctor Nikola by Guy Boothby( Book )

28 editions published between 1896 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce roman nous fait découvrir l'un des personnages les plus fascinants de la littérature d'aventures de l'ère victorienne : le docteur Nikola. Dans le Shanghai du début du XXe siècle, Wilfred Bruce fait la connaissance du docteur Nikola, un mystérieux occultiste. Il le suivra jusqu'au Tibet, sur les traces d'une secte de moines chinois censée détenir le secret que le docteur cherche à percer depuis des années : l'immortalité. Servi par un rythme haletant et une écriture nerveuse proche de celle des auteurs américains des années trente. Docteur Nikola nous plonge dans la magie et l'exotisme de la Chine de l'époque coloniale. Biographie[s] d'auteur[s] Né en Australie, Guy Boothby (1867-1905) fut un auteur prolifique qui s'essaya à tous les genres littéraires. Sa plus célèbre création est sans doute cet inquiétant docteur Nikola qui apparaît dans cinq de ses romans. Son style vif et alerte, son sens de l'action, et l'authentique exotisme que ses nombreux voyages lui permirent d'apporter à ses histoires font de Guy Boothby l'un des plus remarquables auteurs d'aventures de son temps, admiré par nombre de ses confrères dont le grand Rudyard Kipling
