Michael Matsonabout this book: "If it hadn't been for the dog (damned dog as she thought of it later), Suzanne Choe wouldn't have found the body at all. Considering that and everything that followed, it just gave her one more reason to regret having to agree to care for the beast in the first place."
Suzanne's discovery opens up an investigation that leads to the uncovering of the Japanese Mafia's involvement in the US. But the explanation of why the body is there at all begins more than 70 years earlier with one man's attempt to protect his family and property from the war he knew was coming.
Takishi's Choice is a novel of the search for the answer to what that one man did. It is a tale of betrayal - both by the country Takeshi Kirihara loved and by the friend he entrusted when he and his family were sent to the relocation camps. It is also a story of greed and loss. In the end, it is a novel of acceptance.
