"Mas Arai is a wholly original sleuth--reluctant, curmudgeonly, and irresistible."
-- Nina Revoyr, author of Lost Canyon, Southland, and Wingshooters
Mas Arai's best friend Haruo is getting married, and he has grudgingly agreed to serve as best man. But when the ancient Japanese doll display that belongs to Haruo's fianc e goes missing, the wedding is called off with fingers pointed at Haruo. To save his friend's life, Mas must untangle a web of secrecy, heartbreaking memories, and murder dating all the way back to the Japanese American detention centers of World War II and drug-running of the 1980s.
