Overview

Meet Dr. Xenon Pearl, mid thirty's, the best neurosurgeon in South Florida, a girlfriend, a close family, life should be great. Except this is not his life, or not all of it. Pearl is the reincarnation of a hard-core Chinese warrior, or at least that's what a vision of his now deceased martial arts master tells him. In the spirit of martial arts probity, The Cutting Season brings the traditional Asian martial arts novel to our shores, exploring human conflict, desires, and the search for moral certainties.

Editorial Reviews

Walter Anderson
"A gripping story.. The Cutting Season is far more a page-turning mystery than a martial-arts slam-bang, more James Bond than Bruce Lee. Rosenfeld's medical knowledge and martial-arts expertise reinforce an authority and clarity to the work. Away from the book, I [might] dismiss the living spirit...but as I read, I believed her, heard her: that's storytelling!"
Lawrence A. Kane
"Remarkable! Not since Eisler’s terrific John Rain series have I found such a spellbinding and intelligent thriller. Rosenfeld has developed a literary masterpiece with The Cutting Season, forging a complex plot, tempering it with gritty realism, and honing it with wry humor to create a book that’s exceptionally well-paced and incredibly hard to put down. This book has everything that smart readers will want: intense characters, extraordinary events, realistic action, and unique insight into the mysterious world of classical martial arts. I truly hope there will be a sequel. Soon! Very highly recommended!”
Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine - Gene Ching
"A brain surgeon swordsman battles with Taoist Jews, Russian mobsters, and his own reincarnations beneath a Florida hurricane. Settle back with a cup of high mountain tea, a bite of gourmet chocolate and this smart martial arts thriller. Rosenfeld has set a refreshing new standard for martial arts fiction."
