Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Four years have passed since the events in MANDARIN YELLOW when Socrates Cheng's Chinese heritage pulled him into the mysteries of his oriental roots. Socrates now is a wiser and more cynical investigator.

In the time that has passed since MANDARIN YELLOW, Socrates' father has died and his mother has returned to her Greek origins, moving into a condominium populated by elderly Greek immigrants, including one woman who is reputed to be the direct descendant of the ancient Oracle at Delphi. And that is where Socrates' problems begin as Socrates, skeptical at first of the old woman's powers, soon learns the hard way that her dire prophecies sometimes have a disquieting and deadly way of coming true. 

About the Author

Steve has been a student of both Greek and Chinese culture, philosophy and history for more than two decades and continues to be intrigued by the disparate and often contradictory contributions each of these civilizations has made to American culture.
Steve holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy and history from Pennsylvania State University and a law degree from Duke Law School. He is retired from law practice and now occasionally works as a freelance writer focusing on computer network security and related technical matters. He lives with his wife, Dominica,  in Washington, DC.
