Summary
  • Fighting his way across the West to rescue his wife and exact revenge on the men who destroyed him, while settling old scores along the way, Ming Tsu is aided by a blind clairvoyant and a troupe of magic-show performers, some with supernatural powers
  • Orphaned son of Chinese immigrants, Ming Tsu is raised by the notorious leader of a California crime syndicate, who trains him to be his deadly enforcer. Ming falls in love with Ada, daughter of a powerful railroad magnate, and they elope with plans to escape to a different life. When the tycoon's henchmen kidnap Ada and conscript Ming into service for the Central Pacific Railroad, he partners with a blind clairvoyant known as the prophet. They set out to rescue his wife and to exact revenge on the men who destroyed Ming, aided by a troupe of magic-show performers, some with supernatural powers, whom they meet on the journey. -- adapted from jacket
