According to Wikipedia, “Lee recounts his life in autobiographical fiction. A challenging childhood in San Francisco’s Panhandle is the subject of his book China Boy (1991), which became San Francisco’s first One City One Book selection and a Colorado Springs Pikes Peak Reads selection. Honor and Duty (1994) describes the tension between integrity, friendship, and fidelity in an autobiographical tale about West Point. Tiger’s Tail (1996) recounts Lee’s role as an Army criminal investigator pursuing enemy secret agents, man-carried atomic devices, and shaman prophets on the Korean DMZ. No Physical Evidence (2000) is a legal thriller that recounts a difficult trial as a deputy DA involving a vulnerable teenage victim and a sociopathic child abuser and recounts the simultaneous loss of their first daughter. Lee followed with a memoir, Chasing Hepburn (2004), in which his mother and three young sisters conduct a harrowing flight from wartime China to America. His 2007 book Courage: The Backbone of Leadership describes the measurable behaviors of integrity and courage. He has contributed to anthologies, written for Time and Encyclopædia Britannica, and written op-eds. The death of his West Point mentor, General H. Norman Schwarzkopf caused him to write With Schwarzkopf: Life Lessons of the Bear (2015), which recalls their relationship.”
