I've missed a book out of this series. I think I'd got tired of it really as I suspect I could have got hold of the last one if I'd tried harder. I think the author was tired of the series too as this one pretty much completes it. I didn't much like the ending, the only bit where the book really came alive for me was in the middle where an old character turned up for a cameo.

Actually I think if Sujata Massey did write another book about Rei it could be quite interesting given the changes that came about in this one. But this one's little but an end-of-show party. ( )

The latest in the Rei Shimura mystery series, Rei accompanies her father, uncle and cousin to Oahu to meet with a long lost relative and gets involved in an arson investigation. Hugh blows in briefly to visit when he thinks she's dangerously ill. In the end she marries new beau Michael Hendricks. ( )

Taattua laatua sarjan lukijoille. Japani-faneja harmittanee maisemanvaihdos, mutta japanilaispiireissä edelleenkin liikutaan. ( )

A big step back up from Girl in a Box, this felt more like some of the earlier books. Massey has also gotten rid of the ridiculous notion of Rei as a spy...something that simply did not fit the character.

According to her Web site, this is the last of the Rei Shimura books. ( )

This time Rei is in Hawaii to visit with some long lost distant cousins, and learns a lot about conditions on plantations in the early 19th century, as well as what happened to her relatives during the war, and the current state of affairs in Hawaii. The book was interesting and Rei got into her usual amount of dangerous trouble. A good read. ( )
