“This book was given to me as a gift and this is the first in a mystery series.
The main characters are Japaneses Americans, some who have survived the dropping of the A Bomb on Japan in WWII.
I liked the mystery although I did have some trouble following who was who as far as the characters were concerned at first but the book was interesting enough that I didn't want to give up and I'm glad I finished the book.
Mas, the main character is not perfect and while he does have some flaws, he is persistent in trying to rid himself of the Bachi that follows him because of his past misdeeds by helping some of the people around him and also resolving a crime that was committed during the war.
I did like the book enough that I think I will try to get the next book in the series.”
