"If you are not a fan of 1940s American history, you will become one!" -Naomi Hirahara
author of the Mas Arai mysteries
In December 1941, patriotism and paranoia grip New York as the city mobilizes for war. Nurse Louise Hunter is outraged when the FBI arrests Masako Fumi, an avant-garde artist and newcomer to the city. Then Masako's art dealer is found dead in the gallery where he'd been closing down her show and Masako's troubles multiply. Louise hires a radical lawyer and enlists the help of her journalist roommate. Louise and homicide detective Michael McKenna must defy both racism and ham-fisted government agents to expose the real killer.
