Pipe Dreams
Pipe Dreams is a fast-paced tale of seduction and redemption. Told primarily from a Chinese point of view, this action-packed, psychological thriller takes readers on a rip-roaring journey through China and Southeast Asia in the early 1990’s. Nicklaus Blake, a young rancher from Colorado, is sent to China to manage a joint-venture. He falls in love with two women: Li Ping, a high-end courtesan, who uses him to escape from a pathological gangster; and Su Ming, his loyal assistant. Blake encounters gangsters, artists, business titans, drug lords, prostitutes, con artists, a Buddhist master, and an eccentric herbalist in his quest to find true love. All of Pipe Dream’s characters, and the historical context in which they live, shed light on the Asian mind.

"...There is so much to relish in this novel, from the romance to the exciting adventures. The characters are exceptionally crafted. They are rich, each reflecting a unique aspect of the culture. The prose is excellent and filled with vivid descriptions... a beautiful story beautifully told, a delightful read, indeed."   5 Star Review by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite
 
"...It takes a lot of skill to write so much into a novel and still keep it enjoyable. While the material in the novel is well-researched, this author does an impeccable job of transforming that material into a spellbinding story... 5 Star Review by Runa Oserio for Readers' Favorite
 
"…Pipe Dreams by Jeffrey Fischmann is a wonderfully intricate and exceptionally well-written novel. With layer upon layer of plot and interesting characters, the story had me hooked from the very beginning..." 5 Star Review by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite
 
"...a debut novel filled with literary standard depictions and authenticity when it comes to the culture of the Far East. As well as being an education in the 'Wild East' era of the nineties, the story itself gives multiple perspectives on life in China from high and low places, presenting a fully rounded human experience through its interwoven plot lines..." 5 Star Review by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

 

“…The author writes beautiful subplots into the story and this creates the suspense that makes it an exciting read. Jeffrey Fischmann paints vivid images of South East Asia in the '90s and explores the realities such as the opium trade. This is a romance with strong cultural and social foundations. A gripping tale that will keep any reader awake through the night.”  5 Star review by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite
