Set on the fictional San Piedro Island in the northern Puget Sound region of the state of Washington coast in 1954, the plot revolves around a murder case in which Kabuo Miyamoto, a Japanese American, is accused of killing Carl Heine, a respected fisherman in the close-knit community. Much of the story is told in flashbacks explaining the interaction of the various characters over the prior decades.

I loved this book because it takes place in the Northwest - mostly in the San Juan islands. My Mom's from Seattle and we've visitied there a lot over the years. It gave me a new appreciation for the plight of the American Japanese during WWII and what it was like to be relocated in your own country.

It was alright. I started off slow and eventually, became more suspenseful. The stories were interesting, but it was hard to get into this book. It was predictable and not as captivating of a murder mystery as I thought. I enjoyed seeing Hatsue's views in the book.

I look forward to reading this because I did not see the movie and I work in the entertainment industry so I like to read scripts.
