Marc Olden (1933 – 2003) was an American author of mystery and suspense. He is perhaps best remembered for his mystery Poe Must Die, in which 19th-century American author Edgar Allan Poe appears as a protagonist. He was a prolific author, publishing. He was a prolific author, publishing forty books: two non-fiction and thirty-eight fiction. He was nominated for an Edgar Award for They've Killed Anna, from his popular "Harker File" series about an investigative reporter.

In Kisaeng, Marc Olden has created one of the most chilling villains in recent memory: Park Song, on the surface an urbane, charming Korean multi-millionaire who is, in reality, the world's foremost counterfeiter of . But his secrets go deeper.

A thriller from the author of "Dai-Sho", "Oni" and "Te". When Laughing Boy finds the perfect woman, he showers her with gifts, then begins her education as a "Kinsaeng", a creature of recreation.

Marc Olden was an American author of mystery and suspense novels. The book follows the exploits of Robert Sand, a martial arts expert and the only non-Japanese trained by a Japanese samurai master. Marc Olden started his writing career with two works of non-fiction - a biography of Angela Davis and a study of Cocaine in 1970s New York - before turning to the genres of thriller and suspense. Under the pen name Robert Hawkes, Olden began writing the Narc series, which follows a policeman on a counterdrug task force. It became a successful novel series and was later made into a film, starring Jim Kelly.

During those prolific early years Olden also produced BLACK SAMURAI. Many of Olden’s books, such as the eastern-influenced GIRI, DAI-SHO, GAIJIN, ONI, TE, KISAENG and KRAIT, reflect his twin passions for eastern culture and philosophy. Olden’s interests covered a broad spectrum.

Olden is master of swift, fact-crammed prose that gives a surface credibility to plots built entirely on coincidence .

Olden is master of swift, fact-crammed prose that gives a surface credibility to plots built entirely on coincidence, the philosophic structure of the Olden universe; and he is superior to just about all thriller writers for knockout characterizations and superbly whimsical dialogue whose menace and tension flatten the reader's nose to the page while snapping his fingers. Typical Olden description (of renegade detective Ben Dumas): & had to be anxious around a dude who not only killed people but who'd once strangled a drug dealer's pit bull to death with his bare hands.

Marc Olden, Good as always, I have most of his Books! Didn't know Kisaeng was a term for Korean Geisha.

I discovered Marc Olden at a book exchange. I am a lover of Eric Lustbader's Nicholas Linnear books and Marc Olden is a writer of the same style and genre, international intrigue, martial arts with Asian antagonists. His protagonist in Kisaeng is Manny Decker, who is featured in one other, the most well known of his books, Giri. Both are good reads, fast paced, great development of the characters and international settings. Remember, these books were written in the 80's so the language and politics are almost 30 years old. Recommend all of his Asian titles, Giri and Kisaeng feature Manny Decker, Gaijin and Krait (if you can find it) feature Simon Bender, Dai-Sho and Te (Sword of Vengeance) feature Frank Dipalma and his son Todd.

I gave this book a 4 star rating, it is not as good as Giri which I would give a 5 star rating. The antagonists are just absolute scum of the earth and Park Song, the ultimate slime, tap dances to Fred Astaire musicals?!!!!
