Rice, Christopher (b. 1978)  
 
page: 1  2  3  4  

At the heart of the book is family--both family relationships and family secrets.

The Moonlit Earth received mixed reviews, but Booklist found it "a fast-paced thriller with an engaging story and solidly designed characters. At some moments, the plot seems a bit contrived, but you could say that about most thrillers, and the author pushes through those moments, keeping our focus on the forward motion of the narrative."

Sponsor Message.

Rice has served as President of the Lambda Literary Foundation Board of Trustees.

He currently lives in West Hollywood.
