This book isn't about a unshaven shabbily dressed chain- smoking hard drinking Private Eye, who lives in a run-down shoebox style home/office, and only has one friend. The book's mystery can't be solved only after reading the first couple of chapters, the assignment the hero's hired for, at the beginning of the'story, isn't the major problem that gets resolved, and he definitely doesn't get the girl in the end. The initial idea for the book, China Connection, came from the author's reading several fiction and non-fiction books pertaining to diseases, and her memories of a 1950's newspaper article involving China. The blending of the initial idea along with the author's work in the business and manufacturing world, established friendships with computer technicians and Biochemists, real-life travels, public tours of wineries, breweries, and a tea manufacturing plant, plus a private tour of a Pepsi Bottling plant, helps create a mystery, with a new twist, a Private Eye's involvement with the pop industry.
