A freak accident in Manhattan sets in motion a bizarre series of events driven by ambition, passion and, above all, revenge. Red Sky Falling is a post-modern family saga narrated by Gideon Harvey, who was born on the day of John F. Kennedy's assassination.
Murder and conspiracy are the Harvey family legacies. Black humor and high camp weave through the story set in downtown New York. The Harvey's are in bed with the Chinese Triads who smuggle illegal immigrants into America and the Mafia controls the unions.
The Harvey Trio played the small-time nightclub circuit in Asia until they hit the big time in the trafficking business. But the band's singer, Saint Anne, is discontent. Her Vietnamese mother gained fame as a singer in Saigon during the war. The daughter has made a pact to become a celebrity no matter what the cost.
Red Sky Falling was originally published in 1994 under the title of Saint Anne.
Christopher G. Moore is a Canadian author of 22 novels, a non-fiction, one collection of interlocked short stories, and one book on Thai language. Oxford-educated, Moore was a law professor at the University of British Columbia for 10 years. His first book His Lordship's Arsenal was published in New York to a critical acclaim in 1985, when he decided to become a full-time writer.
Moore moved to Thailand in 1988 and from Bangkok continued to write literary and commercial fiction. He has attained somewhat of a cult status among his readers in Asia and Europe and has an increasingly strong following in North America. Moore is probably best known by his cult classics, Land of Smiles Trilogy, his behind-the-smiles study of his adopted country, Thailand, and his highly popular Vincent Calvino Private Eye series.
