Summary:

February, 1940. In San Francisco's Chinatown, fireworks explode as the city celebrates Chinese New Year with a Rice Bowl Party, a three-day-and-night carnival designed to raise money and support for China war relief. Miranda Corbie is a thirty-three-year-old private investigator who stumbles upon the fatally shot body of Eddie Takahashi. The Chamber of Commerce wants it covered up. The cops acquiesce. All Miranda wants is justice-whatever it costs. From Chinatown tenements, to a tattered tailor's shop in Little Osaka, to a high-class bordello draped in Southern Gothic, she shakes down the city-her city-seeking the truth.

    This is my first book by Kelli Stanley, I chose the book because it takes place in San Francisco in 1940. The reader did a great job. I was impressed with the attention to detail taken by the author to portray San Francisco in 1940. The streets, buildings, and various products sold were all accurate. The story moved right along and there was both suspense and action. The relationship between the local Chinese and Japanese was demonstrated in the story.
