The Heat of the Sun a “Fiction Top Pick” for December

“An explosive story of friendship”

US magazine Bookpage has made The Heat of the Sun a “Fiction Top Pick” for December 2012. In its review, Bookpage calls The Heat of the Sun “an explosive story of friendship” and “a sensitive, intelligent snapshot of a watershed moment in our country’s history.” The review continues: “Rain’s worthy novel is a touching, often searing tale of friendship, betrayal and love. His flawed characters are staggering beneath the weight of the past, which they carry like burdens even beyond the book’s chilling, operatic conclusion.” Read the full review here.
