Hi Joan,

The books will probably take place in Shanghai, but I will definitely incorporate more details about his childhood in San Francisco. Thanks for the suggestions. And I'm glad you enjoyed Conspiracy in Tokyo. I hope you will continue on to the other Reiko Watanabe/Inspector Aizawa books!

Thanks,
