Welcome back to our award nominee corner: From last week’s Rachel Howzell’s AND NOW SHE’S GONE (an L.A. Times Book Prize finalist) to this week’s Edgar and Anthony award nominated Mas Arai mystery by the estimable Naomi Hirahara.
HIROSHIMA BOY marks a journey by Los Angeles gardener Mas Arai, who returns to Japan to bring his best friend’s ashes to a relative. This errand involves him in another death, a teenage boy who had been the same age as Mas when he survived the atomic bomb in 1945.
The Pasadena-born will be on the panel The Exquisite Joy of Finding Out: How to Research Your Novel with Anne Perry, Jeffrey Deaver, S.A. Cosby and moderator Anne Louse Bancroft.
