Reviews

"[Hirahara] brings heart and elegance to a nifty whodunit.... In the process of solving a murder mystery, an elderly Japanese-American begins to rebuild the strained relationship with his only daughter."--Kirkus Reviews

"What makes this series unique is its flawed and honorable protagonist. ... A fascinating insight into a complex and admirable man."--Booklist, starred review

"The endearing, quietly dignified Mas, supported by a cast of spirited New Yorkers, as well as the distinctive Japanese-flavored prose, make this a memorable read."--Publishers Weekly

"A compelling grasp of the Japanese American subculture ... absolutely fascinating."--Asian American Press
