Über diesen Titel
When Los Angeles detective Sam Ohara took the call, he never guessed that he Would become personally involved in the case. The male Caucasian with no ID, stabbed and then thrown into a vacant lot, could have been a mugging victim-but he isn't. And in spite of the dead man's clean-cut good looks, Ohara soon discovers that the murder victim has served time for violent crime and was closely involved in the politics of prison gangs and the area drug trade. There are hints of far more horrible crimes in Roy Morgan's past-but who has killed him. Digging into the murder, Ohara is quickly led into a world he knows wellthe small circle of Japanese and JapaneseAmericans in Los Angeles. For Sam Ohara is not as Irish as his name. He's a six-foot Japanese-American by birth whose heritage is as much a part of him as his skin. He and his sergeant, black Ted Washington, must build a case on a handful of disparate clues-a pink oleander petal, two tiny gold charms inscribed with dates, a beautifully made but broken Japanese doll, and the distinctive nature of the dead man's wound. The Nisei detective can pinpoint the source of the doll and learn who made it. He can put his questions to the widowed storekeeper, Mrs. Ham Kubota, in her own language. But his fluent Japanese is of no use with the beautiful girl-woman who could well be his most important witness, for the young Yumi Kubota can neither hear nor speak. Before this case is over, Ohara will question his basic belief in justice. Whose rights have been violated-the victim's or the killer's- His dilemma, the authentic and colorful setting, the varied characters, the interplay- between the two nonwhite police officers, each carrying the scars of their "differentness," and Ohara's intuitive detective work-all combine to make this a moving story as well as a suspenseful one. And they lead to a surprising and oddly satisfying climax.
