Peter Strand is half Chinese and half Cherokee and was adopted by an elderly white couple from Phoenix. Now he's a forensic accountant in San Francisco, where he's struggling with his identity.
When his employer asks him to investigate a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization, Strand meets a cast of quirky characters who all seem to be hiding a secret. Peter soon finds evidence of a probable fraud, but when fraud leads to murder, he's drawn deeper into a murky mystery.
The Black Tortoise is the second book in the Peter Strand Mystery series.

I heard the water lapping at the pilings. I went to the edge and looked over. To my surprise there was a large tortoise—more likely a turtle, since it was at home in the sea. Its dark, shiny shell might have been five feet long. When our eyes met, it disappeared.
