Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Allison Hiroto provides a steady, clear narration of this well-researched historical mystery. The year is 1944, and Japanese- American Aki Ito and her parents have just been released from the Manzanar internment camp in California. They are sent to resettle in Chicago, where they learn of the death of Aki's beloved older sister, Rose. Unconvinced of the police's ruling of Rose's death as a suicide, Aki is determined to figure out what really happened. Listeners experience everything through Aki's eyes, and narrator Hiroto captures her drive and persistence. While Hiroto's expression is subtle and could use more energy, listeners will be intrigued by the rich period details, elegant prose, and absorbing story.
