While writing the biography of a deceased international Asian megastar whose death was ruled an accident, a former street reporter battles a powerful Asian crime syndicate when he discovers that the celebrity was murdered and that his widow, under the threat of death, has become an accomplice in the murder cover-up and the victim of extortion. Although Bleecker has many nonfiction book credits (including The Bruce Lee Story that he co-wrote with Lee’s widow Linda Lee), Tea Money, which is a mystery-suspense thriller inspired by true events, is his first novel. On reading the screenplay version, acclaimed actor Peter Strauss commented, “I thoroughly enjoyed the material. I do believe the Asian underworld is a rich cinematic plateau. And the script had a nice Chinatown and Jake Gittes character feel.”

Tom Bleecker began his writing career in 1970 under the mentorship of Oscar winning screenwriter and director Blake Edwards and continued writing television and film for Edwards for 15 years. During that time frame, Bleecker also wrote for actor William Shatner, as well as several major television networks and film studios. After writing for screen and television for nearly 30 years, Bleecker coauthored his first book with Linda Lee (The Bruce Lee Story), which was published in July 1988 and used as the foundational material for Universal’s feature film DRAGON. Bleecker is best known for Warner Brothers’ The Jacket starring Academy Award winner Adrian Brody and Keira Knightly. Several books followed, including Bleecker’s controversial second book on Lee, Unsettled Matters, which became a bestseller and is considered by many to be the most informative book ever written on the legendary martial arts icon; The Journey with noted biographer Joe Hyams; and Inside U: How to Become a Master of Your Own Destiny by Grandmaster Byong Yu, Ph.D., with Tom Bleecker (Hay House Publishers), Conquest over Hatred: the Donnie Williams Story, which has been featured on Pat Robertson’s 700 Club and Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), and followed by Horace Heidt: Big Band Star Maker. In 2011, the author completed Tea Money, which is a mystery-thriller and full length feature screenplay inspired by the controversial death of kung-fu legend Bruce Lee. The following year, the author penned The International Journey, followed by THE JET (Foreword by Gene LeBell), which is the life story of the legendary martial arts kickboxing icon Benny “The Jet” Urquidez, which was followed by MY SONG, the compelling and heartwarming life story of Polish immigrant Jolanta Soysal.
