Early 1942, just months after Pearl Harbor, a police detective knocks on Britt Reid's door. He is looking for Kato; there has been a murder in the Korean section of Chicago. Kato is Japanese, but posing as Korean to avoid persecution. At the crime scene Kato finds a single Japanese character written in blood, "coward." This opens a web of intrigue that will take Kato across the US to a Japanese internment camp in California. Along the way he will battle mobsters and crooked cops, spies and ninjas, and fall in love. Can Kato choose between love and revenge?
