Description
In this fourth installment of the Mas Arai mystery series (following the Edgar Award winner Snakeskin Shamisen, Gasa-Gasa Girl, and Summer of the Big Bachi, named one of the Chicago Tribune's Ten Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2004 and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year), Mas' best friend Haruo is marrying the widow Spoon, and Mas has grudgingly agreed to serve as his best man. But then Spoon's house is burgled, and a beautiful and valuable display of ancient Japanese hina dolls is stolen. Fingers point to Haruo, and the wedding is called off. Mas investigates, and uncovers heartbreaking memories, deception, and murder in their Japanese community in Southern California.

"Semi-retired, seventy-something amateur detective Mas Arai's fourth adventure finds him with less work than ever in his gardening business but plenty to keep him busy after his best friend, Haruo, decides to get married to fellow widower Spoon. But the wedding is called off the day before the event when his fiancée's house is burgled, and her family's hina dolls are stolen. Mas suspects Spoon's youngest daughter, Dee, a recovering addict, but Dee seems equally eager to find the real thief. Together, they investigate a series of clues that lead them into the provenance of the hina dolls and, eventually, into Spoon and Dee's murky past."—Booklist
