Cutting Season was a fabulous book. I special ordered Quiet Teacher after reading it. I would buy both books in hard cover, signed if I could. I think they will be cult favorites.
The first book is skillfully plotted and beautifully written. Quiet Teacher is slower and hard to get into, but the last half of the book is very good and the ending chapter is outstanding, one of the best ever. I can't get enough of this author and his great story telling. Tell me there will be more.
Guys are going to love this; all the Chinese medicine and the rather interesting romance will catch the women.
And anyone who loves Dexter is going to really like these books.
Don't miss these two!

I Also Recommend:
This is the exciting conclusion (of sorts) to the exciting Xenon Pearl thriller. This story has mystery, thrills and martial arts all combined for an exciting and interesting read. Arthur Rosenfeld intricately weaves a story filled with such twists and turns that not only captures the interest of the reader but succeeds in keeping the reader on the edge. I read this book without wanting to take any breaks just so I could get to the next part of the story.
It was fun to read about the local areas of South Florida where this story takes place. I felt that I could meet Xenon at any time. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's in depth knowledge of medical, martial arts, and even motorcycles. His refreshing but almost torturous take on love and pain was interesting and opened up a whole new way of thinking for me.
This book is an absolute must have for anyone with a love of all things martial arts. I do hope that a movie is made from these 2 books - The Cutting Season and Quiet Teacher. Bravo!
