About the Book

Rabbit in the Moon

As the world focuses on China, human rights and the approach of the Beijing Olympics, one thriller lays it all out.

A stunning work of fiction, Rabbit in the Moon delivers a wealth of information (and reiveting entertainment) through its vivid look at China, its culture, politics, and ancient wisdom.

Rabbit in the Moon takes place during the most tumultuous seven weeks in recent Chinese history from the rise of the Student Democracy Movement in April, to its fall with Tiananmen massacre on June 4, 1989. Against that backdrop, the novel tells the story of Lili Quan, only child of an immigrant mother who raises her daughter in San Francisco. Lili is a medical resident when we meet her, working in a Los Angeles hospital. She is lured to China to study medicine, but the Communist government wants Lili more for her connection to her grandfather, Dr. Cheng. Cheng has been hiding a valuable secret from the government, putting himself, Lili and the entire world in dire jeopardy.
