Staff Reviews


Aki Ito is just like any other gal in 1944 Chicago, or at least that’s what she wishes. The war rages on in both Europe and the Pacific, young men are drafted, and rations are tight, but Aki is also Nisei, first generation Japanese-American. Her family was recently released from Manzanar and relocated to Chicago where her sister, Rose, had been sent months before. The day before Aki and her parents arrive in Chicago, Rose is killed by a subway train. The police say she committed suicide, but Aki doesn’t believe it and vows to find out just what happened to Rose Ito. A beautifully rendered snapshot of a tragic time in American history, a heartbreaking crime that speaks volumes to today, and a gutsy heroine who fights for truth, from herself and the world that has turned so topsy-turvy.

Clark and Division is a propulsive mystery and a heart-wrenching examination of Japanese internment and relocation in the 1940s. Hirahara beautifully weaves history and injustice into this fascinating and compelling crime novel.”
