Rahu, God of Darkness, has unraveled the safety nets in the City of Angels. Even the rich are in a free-fall state when the Thai economic boom goes bust in 1997. A young American, Hurley Ransom Conover, follows his Thai girlfriend to her homeland and finds himself at the center of her family’s turmoil. Hurley trips along the edges of Bangkok days and nights giving the performance of his life as the relationship with his girlfriend falls apart and her father needs him to rescue the family empire.


“Aside from writing some very good crime novels, Christopher G. Moore shows some real insight into interpersonal relationships, power, family, loyalty and, strangely, the disciplined schedule of a masturbating monkey. It’s astounding that this is one of his very early works. He only gets better over time.”
—Dharma Bum (Amazon reviewer)

“Moore has written a wonderful time capsule of this roller coaster, crash and burn period [of 1997 economic crisis in Thailand]. If [you] want to know what goes on behind those high walls in those expensive Bangkok neighborhoods while getting a good thriller of a ride then read GOD OF DARKNESS.”
—Kevin Cummings, Chiang Mai City News

“The stories of other writers—locals and expats—maybe likened to sketches or drawings, while those of Christopher G. Moore are paintings or murals.”
Bangkok Post
