This second installment of The Spiders continues the characters’ continent-crossing pursuit of a diamond-shaped head of Buddha that is supposed to make the woman who wears it ruler of Asia. Lang indulges in the exotic and creates mysterious, labyrinthine architectural sets, with caves, underground chambers, and vaults serving The Spiders as clandestine meeting places.
