Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Antiques dealer Rei Shimura has managed to snag one of the most lucrative and prestigious jobs of her career: a renowned museum in Washington, D.C., has invited her to exhibit her kimonos and give a lecture on them. Accompanied by a gaggle of Japanese office ladies bent on a week of shopping, Rei lands in the capital. But her big break could ultimately break her. Within hours one of the kimonos is stolen, and then Rei's passport is discovered in a shopping mall dumpster—on the dead body of one of the Japanese tourists. Trouble is only beginning, though, for now Rei's parents have arrived and so has her ex-boyfriend. To track down the kimono and unmask a killer, Rei's got to do some clever juggling, fast talking, and quick sleuthing, or this trip home could be her last.

Synopsis:

Rei Shimura is struggling to build her antiques business in Tokyo when she gets a call from a Washington, D.C. museum, asking her to act as courier to transport a set of priceless early 19th-century kimonos. Thus begins the adventure of a lifetime, involving stolen artifacts, a wacky tour group of Japanese women heading for U.S. shopping malls, and a very dead body. Rei manages to reunite with her parents in California, to uncover a story of long-dead lovers, to rekindle a tempestuous affair with the man who just might be her Mr. Right, and— of course— to solve the crime.
