San Francisco, 1989: Forty years after Mao and his People's Liberation Army set poised to change China forever, Dr. Lili Quan prepares for a journey that will change her life forever. To honor her mother's dying wish that Lili return home, Lili reluctantly sets out for China. For Lili, a passionate idealist, this will be an extraordinary trip filled with remarkable discoveries - from meeting and falling in love with Chi-Wen Zhou, a victim of the Cutural Revolution and zealous Taoist, to finding Dr. Ni-Fu Cheng, the grandfather Lili believed had died years ago. But Dr. Cheng has made the most remarkable discovery of all: he's discovered the secret to long life. As Dr. Cheng's only relative, Lili's life is in jeopardy. As greedy and unscrupulous men vie for control of the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, Lili Quan could become a pawn in a deadly and dangerous international game. Before Lili can hold the key to the future, she must unlock the deadly secrets of the past.

    " I love Lili! And China. Couldn't put it down. "

    " I have yet to see how this has such a high review. It really wasn't worth the $25 I spent on it. The story line had such potential to go in a good direction, but the authors really went in such an odd direction. I really think that they followed the wrong characters for too long and I also think that the sex scenes they added were totally pointless and not necessary for the book. I actually think they made it worse. Did the authors add them to try and appeal to a certain audience? Goodness me, so odd... "

    " The value of roots and culture. A great and exciting read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Wheeler | 12/28/2013

    " It was good, but a couple of trashy parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindakneafsey | 12/24/2013

    " Really enjoyed this book. Lots of excitment and drama in a well-reseached backdrop of life in China. Fun and informative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 12/6/2013

    " Predictable, but somewhat exciting and enjoyable with a good ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 8/23/2013

    " Very good read about China and the cultural revolution, set during the 1989 student uprising though it provides an overview of the Communist takeover. Loved the main character Lili. Only complaint... too much film-script of lust and sex included. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 7/9/2013

    " Great book! The plot reads like a top notch movie thriller, mixing political intrigue and an unvarnished view of healthcare. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria Law | 6/29/2013

    " I'm not a fan of thrillers and this book reminded me why. That said, it did mix the political landscape of China in 1989 with the plot in a way that didn't seem forced or false. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 5/19/2013

    " Wasn't crazy bad, having some insight into the student revolutions in the late '80's, but overall not very engaging. I was often wondering if San Francisco was so racist and ugly toward the Chinese community (where all of Lili's angst came from). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis Ackerman | 5/16/2013

    " Intriguing, well researched thriller. Definitely recommend "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Moore | 5/13/2013

    " Wonderful book--a real page-turner. Thrilling action as Lili Quan visits her ancestral homeland and stumbles on a life-changing secret that has her running for her life! Great romance, mystery, thriller. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jodi | 2/18/2013

    " I honestly had to put this down about halfway through, the writing was pretty bad and the story was so formulaic, but still hard to follow all the myriad subplots. I almost think all the people who have reviewed this book so highly must be friends of the authors. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lenoir | 12/17/2012

    " I enjoyed learning more about China and it's recent past but I felt the "thriller" part of the story was just ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimm | 5/9/2012

    " I liked this book but didn't have time to finish it before my book club meeting. It didn't have the same impact when I was able to pick it back up after that. Overall, a good read, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandra | 3/29/2012

    " Didn't see the ending come, was a bit unbelievable at times in the sake of 'all for love', and there were quite a few characters that it made for an impersonal read since I had to remember who everyone was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/18/2011

    " This was a book that I would have passed by on a bookshelf, had it not been the suggested read for our next book club. I found the story captivating and extremely hard to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harriert | 11/9/2011

    " My book club just read Rabbit in the Moon and had one of best discussions. There was so much depth to a story that on the surface was a fast-paced thriller, but yet had historical, cultural and political overtones that made it much more. "
