Brooke, Arthur. Arthur Brooke appeared in the Spanish dime novel La Ciudad del Infierno, o, los Misterios de Shanghai #1-16 (1933).
Arthur Brooke is a British consul in Shanghai, faced with a rebellion of Chinese nationalists against the colonial powers. Unfortunately, the nationalists are the embodiment of the Yellow Peril: child traffickers, opium merchants, violators of white women, tamers of serpents, and so on, in a Shanghai that is well-named "the City of Hell."
