Narrator David Shih expertly handles this unique tale, which is part immigrant story, part coming-of-age story, and part corporate thriller. Immigrant Dae Joon, also known as Shane, adjusts to life in America as a teen, only to find himself returning to Korea as an adult. His return unexpectedly triggers conflicting loyalties. Shih brings authenticity to the Korean-accented English used by several of the main characters, enhancing the listening experience. Shih's performance is light yet powerful as we hear Dae Joon being bullied as a child and feeling conflicted as an adult by ethical dilemmas. Will he save his birth country's finances at the expense of his own morality? Shih keeps listeners hanging on to find out. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
