Mandarin Yellow (Socrates Cheng mystery series, #1)

Why would a burglar break in to a Washington, DC art gallery and steal an historic fountain pen worth $2,000, but leave behind other art and cultural items worth tens-of-thousands of dollars each? And why would someone else later commit murder to protect the burglar's secret?

These are some of the questions that confront Socrates Cheng, the Chinese/Greek PI, as he investigates the burglary and tries to reconcile his three disparate cultures, in a murder mystery that takes him from Georgetown, to Chinatown, and thoughout the Washington Metro area.

Portrait

Because Steve has been a student of Chinese and Greek cultures, philosophy and history for more than three decades, and continues to be intrigued by the often contradictory contributions each of these remarkable and disparate civilizations has made to American culture, he has created a character — Socrates Cheng — who is one-half Greek and one-half Chinese. In Steve's first two books  — MANDARIN YELLOW  and THE MOURNING WOMAN — Socrates' dual heritages play a major role in the crimes he must solve.

Steve holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy and history from Pennsylvania State University and a law degree from Duke Law School. He now is retired from law practice and has occasionally worked as a freelance writer focusing on computer network security and related IT technical matters. He lives with his wife in Washington, DC.
