"It is twenty-five years since China established the first colony on the moon, and the lives of three people are about to collide. American Fred Fredericks is making his first trip there, his purpose 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 to the moon for celebrity travel reporter Ta Shu. He has contacts and influence, but he too will find that the moon can be a perilous place for any traveler. Finally, there is Chan Qi. Daughter of the Minister of Finance, and without doubt a person of interest to those in power. She is on the moon for reasons of her own, but when she attempts to return home to China, in secret, the events that unfold will change everything -- on the moon, and on Earth"--Provided by publisher.

lot of unexplained connections and too many coincidences.... action happens too quickly, i.e. couldn't happen that fast, misses a lot of the detail that goes into the action that would make it more plausible. But an interesting read on politics, not necessarily chinese politics....

Red Moon reverberates with Yin and Yang: male and female, parent and child, moon and earth, empire and colony, Asian and Western, harming and restoring nature, even weaving in quantum entanglement.
Kim Stanley Robinson as ever, also offers strong underlying commentary on ethical issues on the frontiers of science (AI, machine learning, general intelligence), as well as politics (the surveillance state, economic injustice mirrored in both East and West, and the divisive politics of internal Chinese infighting approaching a Party Congress).
