“Rei is a fascinating character: bold, unique, spirited and intelligent… Massey makes good use of the clash between American and Japanese cultures as a backdrop for an enjoyable story.”
Rei, who’s been banned from entering Japan, finds a seemingly miraculous way back into the country. The only catch is she’s working undercover to trace a missing antiquity looted from Iraq, and the guy suspected of owning the contraband is her ex-lover Takeo. Rei’s journey throughout Tokyo and rural Kyushu is full of surprises about historic ceramics—and herself. This book has the showdown between Hugh and Takeo that you may have been anticipating.
