Reader reviews for The Mystery of the Ming Connection
"This was a book I could not put down. I loved it! It is a mystery and suspense novel that is very rich on cultural and historical details. It was so well described I could feel myself present behind the scenes. The caring, daring and well-connected women characters had indeed found themselves involved in something like today's real life scourge, namely: kidnapping, sex trafficking, neo-Nazi activity, and world crime thefts. I highly recommend this novel. You will get a true taste for the South Korean (Seoul) and Chinese experience."

“I have kindled many books since this little device was available. This book is one of those I read through each line without missing a word. It's not just the exciting stories, or mind-boggling mysteries that kept my eyeballs on this 6-inch screen. There is something else much deeper and inspirational. The book is rich in Chinese culture and history, as delicious as the dumpling banquet in one of the chapters." ~ Ian C., Amazon reader
"I enjoyed reading The Mystery of the Ming Connection as I was whisked around the world with some quite knowledgeable women. They seemed equally at home in New York and the Metropolitan, on airlines, in a fancy Korean hotel, and in the Chinese underworld and museums. I could feel I was there. As one gently taking tai chi myself, I found the formidable middle-aged heroine quite staggering in her tai chi abilities - a quality which her Asian adversaries were hardly expecting! A 2nd heroine was extremely knowledgeable in the intricacies of the cyber revolution which helped defeat the thieves! In the most unlikely way, the 3rd heroine, who seem to act quite outside the realm of logic to the point of aggravating this reader, was seen, as is often the case, to have unexpected and intuitive wisdom. And winding in and out of all this was the touching story of intercultural adoption reunions. Whew!”
