Christopher is Anne’s darling gay son. He has become an accomplished author in the past decade. Light Before Day is my favorite of his books, but all six of his offerings are really good, high quality reads. By the age of 30, Christopher Rice had published four New York Times bestselling thrillers, received a Lambda Literary Award and been declared one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. His first supernatural thriller, THE HEAVENS RISE, was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award. His first novel, A DENSITY OF SOULS, was published when he was just 22. The controversial bestseller was greeted with a landslide of media attention, much of it due the fact that Rice’s mother is a legendary vampire chronicler who shares his last name. He served as a contributing columnist to The Advocate for many years and his additional criticisms and witticisms have been featured in The Washington Post, Salon.com, The Daily Beast and his own Facebook page, which currently hails over 140,000 subscribers. The Hetrick Martin Institute honored Rice with an Emery Award for his activism on behalf of LGBT youth, and the New York City Public Advocate’s Office invited him to be their keynote speaker during their annual Gay Pride celebration.
“Adam Murphy, a twenty-five-year-old journalist, is chasing a career-making story of a serial killer preying on young gay men in West Hollywood when he is abruptly fired by the magazine that employs him. He soon learns his former lover has disappeared, but what he’s about to uncover is far more diabolical than he could ever have imagined. Light Before Day is a riveting and complex mystery set against the gothic landscape that Rice has made his own.”
