In this thriller, a prosperous Japanese family is banished from their home by the politics of war – forced to endure three bitter years of internment in the California desert. When they return home, everything is gone. The devastation, dishonor and shame that destroyed his family festers in the heart of one who is on a journey to return honor to his family’s name.

When private investigator M’s quiet, seaside home in Dungeness Bay, Oregon is rocked by a series of murders, the only clue is written on a wall in Japanese, traced in blood. She doesn’t have to go far to find the killer...because HE is coming after her.


A professionally designed cover is an investment in the success of a book and one of the most important marketing decisions an author will make. I  work closely with author clients to design covers that both attract and sell. Each author receives the following services for a fixed fee:

  • Original cover design and art based on research into  genre, period, and appeal to the readers you want to attract.
  • Front cover, back and spine design, plus flaps if required.
  • ISBN barcode from your ISBN. If you need an ISBN number, that service will be provided at a cost.
  • Coordination with your book designer to ensure that the interior and exterior design is consistent. (Interior book design is available at an extra cost.)
  • Working on your behalf with your book printer to ensure that the printing process goes smoothly.
  • All meetings in person, by phone, Skype, or emails are included
  • Cover art adapted for e-books and online book sellers, plus 3-D cover image in high resolution for use in ads, flyers and publicity.
  • All original files and resource art will be provided to you on CD at the end of the project. These cross-platform files can be adapted for web sites, flyers, posters, postcards, t-shirts, bookmarks, and ads.
  • Friendly, courteous and professional service. I respect your deadlines and do my utmost to meet them..
