When a Dragon Winks

Now available in paperback at Amazon!

A con man blows into Berkeley and changes the lives of all on whom he set his sights. But when the dust settles, his victims wonder whether they might have gained far more than they lost.

When a Dragon Winks, a novel by Emmett Eiland, is a celebration of Oriental rugs and a good laugh at the many who fatten themselves off them. It is a cat-and-mouse game of “Find the Fake Rug,” and it is a question of aesthetics: Can a forgery be a work of art?
