Socrates Cheng is a truly marvelous character. An amalgam of Ancient as well as Modern Greek and Chinese cultures, he is a vibrant American figure using the resources of his ancestors to solve an intriguing and suspenseful burglary and murder mystery. We find him in our nation’s capitol. First, as a proprietor of an antique and vintage fountain pen shop and then as an astute detective having been hired by a mysterious Chinese gentlemen to recover an historic fountain pen stolen from a downtown Washington Art Gallery.
Socrates Cheng takes us throughout many familiar Washington venues and locations while tracking down a myriad of leads as an amateur, but soon becoming a highly experienced detective. The story takes many intriguing twists and turns but ultimately, through astute knowledge of his Chinese background, to include the Mandarin Chinese language, discovers the links to a truly remarkable solution.
Author Roth writes clearly and lucidly whilst taking the reader on a joyful and suspenseful experience. I have read a lot of mystery stories in my lifetime, however, none light a candle to Steven M. Roth’s well written story.
