Buried under studies at an Ivy League college then straight to a fast paced career as a Hong Kong businessman, Basho Loy barely has time to take a breath let alone have a personal life.
Surprised and honored to be singled out and put in charge of an entire department at such a young age, Basho is completely intimidated by his boss Kanji Chang. Strange hallucinations involving Kanji begin to make Basho question his own sanity.
Becoming intimate with his boss is definitely unwise for Basho’s career and his mental stability, but the thought of ending their relationship nearly destroys him. What is it about the exotic Kanji that draws Basho back again and again? How can something feel so wrong when his heart says it’s so right?
A straightforward tale twists and turns into something mystical in Stranger Rice. Burdened by long hours and little personal time the main character begins to suspect something’s off and the reader can feel Basho’s growing concerns. The magical aspect creeps in slowly and then takes complete control of the story. Stranger Rice is an adventure of quiet romance and wicked fantasy coming true.
