Book Description from Front Cover Flap

Mas Arai's best friend and fellow Hiroshima survivor, Haruo, is getting married and Mas has grudgingly agreed to serve as best man. But then an ancient Japanese doll display of Haruo's fiancée goes missing, and the wedding is called off with fingers pointed at Haruo. To clear his friend's name, Mas must untangle a web of secrecy dating all the way back to the Japanese-American internment camps of World War II and U.S. drug-running in the 1980s--a world of heartbreaking memories, deception, and murder.

Comments from Back Cover

"Naomi Hirahara has done it again! Blood Hina is a compelling mystery…a beautiful and poignant snapshot of the fast disappearing world of Japanese flower growers and gardeners in Los Angles."
—Lisa See, New York Times bestselling author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

"Mas Arai is a true original and one of my favorite characters in crime fiction. I love spending time in his world and I'm thrilled that he's back—and at the top of his grumpy game."
—S.J. Rozan, Edgar-winning author of The Shanghai Moon

"Blood Hina is even better than Hirahara's Edgar Award-winning Snakeskin Shamisen."
—Denise Hamilton, author of the Eve Diamond series

"Truly one of a kind. Mas Arai is one of the freshest, most realistic, and fascinating characters in the mystery genre. Every book featuring him is a joy to read."
-Chicago Sun-Times

"Hirahara has a keen eye for the telling detail and an assured sense of character."
-Los Angeles Times
