    A story with a lot of potential and some memorable characters but the skill doesn't quite match up to telling it well.

    this was the last book of chris mckinney's that i read.i actually liked the tattoo and bolohead row better. i still love his writing.but i guess i didnt feel as much as a connection as i did the other two.although i did like it.he gets straight to the point,gets you to totally know and feel all the characters in the story. i wasnt expecting the ending at all.i cant wait till he comes out with another book

    Not as good at The Tattoo, McKinney's most well-known book. For some reason, I just can't get into his writing. He spends too much time telling as opposed to showing. Characters are too stereotypical.

    A former Korean actress visits her disintegrating family in Hawaii and we learn about her past. Depressing ending.
