Book Description
Sequel to previously published novel, The Horseman (Hollis Books, VA, 1999), and part of the Lands of the Morning Series, The Scorpion Child is independently plotted and it's a gritty, exciting, controversial novel or reincarnation. Enter Ariadne's dangerous, exotic world, if you dare, for The Scorpion Child might make you a believer! American stage and screen star Daniel Saxon, Ariadne (an American expatriate novelist married to a Turk) and Burhan Kayhanolu (he is an Advisor to the Turkish Military Junta ) are the protagonists, which is a fast-paced, colorful and controversial political thriller. The plot flows between New York, California and Istanbul, on a cinemascopic reel of romance, high-stakes terrorism, sex, intrigue, and subtle undercurrents of mysticism as well as reincarnation, the idea of the latter presented in a no-nonsense, thought-provoking manner.


From the Publisher

I've packed my bags to fly to Istanbul!, March 12, 2001
Reviewer: from Upstate, New York

I am a 30 year old medical researcher, and having read The Horseman, which is the prequel to The Scorpion Child, I could not wait to read The Scorpion Child! This one is shorter, a fast read, yet just as exciting as The Horseman, and the characters, from Ariadne to Daniel, to Burhan, are hard to forget. I enjoyed the time I spent in their world. Now, I am planning to fly to exotic Istanbul, Turkey, just to feel, see, and touch the beguiling locales featured in this novel! P.S: I saw the other reviewer mention reincarnation, and how he began to wonder about it. Interestingly, this is how I feel, too, my logic says reincarnation is a pipe-dream, and yet... do we really know everything about how God's design for us, works?

Have I lived before? The Scorpion Child makes me wonder!, March 8, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from New York, New York

Have I lived before? Orient-Express type books makes me wonder I am a 35 year old artist and multi-media web designer from New York, and do not have much time to keep up with the latest releases. However, friend who has read this novel's prequel, The Horseman, which also deals with reincarnation and is quite exotic, praised it, and I got curious and ordered it from the publishing house. Well, this is a suspense-thriller with unusual and exotic backdrops. Sexy and fast moving, never boring,from New York to Istanbul,politics, high-stakes terrorism,a sympathetic and courageous heroine, and yes, reincarnation is in the core. As I read the novel in between breaks from my heavy work load, I felt like I had a window seat on the Orient Express and pondered the question: is it the soul that reincarnates, or the genes? Even though I finished reading this novel, I still wonder...
