Thirty years in the future, and we have colonized the moon. American Fred Fredericks is making his first trip, to install a communications system for China's Lunar Science Foundation. But hours after his arrival, he witnesses a murder and is forced into hiding. It is also the first visit for celebrity travel reporter Ta Shu, a man with contacts and influence, but he too will find that the moon can be a perilous place for any traveler. In this novel by the Nebula Award winning author of 2312 and Aurora, the finance minister's daughter Chan Qi is on the moon for reasons of her own, but when she attempts to return to China, in secret, the events that unfold will change everything on the moon—and on Earth.
"[This book is] as convincingly textured and observant as we've come to expect from one of the finest writers of his generation."?Locus
