Don't Point At The Moon
Mitchell Baxter considers Hong Kong his home and his castle. Tommy Chow has built a fortress around his heart. But even the mightiest of strongholds have their weak spots.
Escaping painful memories of England, Mitchell Baxter has worked hard to build a life in Hong Kong. His sister thinks he might as well be living on the moon. With a landlady he has never met who sends him cards with auspicious Chinese proverbs, a wheelchair-bound friend who doles out savage advice, and a demanding boss who thinks nothing of calling him into work on Sundays, he has grown to love his solitary existence. But change is constant in the city that never sleeps and, in the same week Mitchell’s sister persuades him to let the nephew he barely knows come to stay, he learns about his employer's plans to shut down all Hong Kong operations.
Tommy Chow is a native Hongkonger living a carefree existence. As a handsome and athletic twenty-nine-year-old sports teacher, he is rarely without a bedmate. He has the perfect life of a single gay man. If only he could shut out the voice in his head telling him something's missing.
When Mitchell ruins Tommy's evening with a good deed, Tommy gives him a roasting. After which neither hope to see the other again. But Hong Kong is like a village and the two keep running into each other. Forming a truce, Tommy provides suggestions to keep Mitchell's nephew occupied while Mitchell agrees to help Tommy win over the best man at his sister's upcoming wedding.
And sometimes a push in the right direction is all that's required.
