“Massey deftly weaves fascinating historical and cultural detail into a suspenseful plot.”
In San Francisco for the holidays, Rei is trying to document her own family’s history and enjoy a visit with Hugh, who’s in town for business. But she’s devastated when Hugh’s client, a former comfort woman from the Philippines who was abused by the Japanese military during World War II, is murdered. The answer to who wants to silence the voices of those he and Rei visited lies back in Tokyo, and leads Rei to unsettling revelations about her great-grandfather’s political ideology. The most politically-charged book in the series so far.
