Five Decembers by James Kestrel Book Summary

Winner of the 2022 Edgar Award for Best Novel
“War, imprisonment, torture, romance…The novel has an almost operatic symmetry, and Kestrel turns a beautiful phrase.”
New York Times
Five Decembers is a gripping thriller, a staggering portrait of war, and a heartbreaking love story, as unforgettable as All the Light We Cannot See.

nominated for Best Novel in the 2022 EDGAR AWARDS



"Read this book for its palpitating story, its perfect emotional and physical detailing and, most of all, for its unforgettable conjuring of a steamy quicksilver world that will be new to almost every reader."
Pico Iyer
December 1941. America teeters on the brink of war, and in Honolulu, Hawaii, police detective Joe McGrady is assigned to investigate a homicide that will change his life forever. Because the trail of murder he uncovers will lead him across the Pacific, far from home and the woman he loves; and though the U.S. doesn't know it yet, a Japanese fleet is already steaming toward Pearl Harbor. 
This extraordinary novel is so much more than just a gripping crime story—it's a story of survival against all odds, of love and loss and the human cost of war. Spanning the entirety of World War II, FIVE DECEMBERS is a beautiful, masterful, powerful novel that will live in your memory forever.

Great historical fiction. My kind of book. Fast paced. Great characters. Incredibly good story line. Highly recommend.

Five Decembers. A great book! Couldn’t put it down!

Nazis in Honolulu. And they’re not wearing leis. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not your normal WWII story. The protagonist is 3-dimensional and the scenes in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Honolulu are vividly drawn.

The type of novel that restores the word epic. One of the most atmospheric novel I’ve ever read. It’s the type of novel you can’t shut up about because it’s got a fantastic plot, it’s filled with historical oddities that blow your mind, and, as a writer myself, I was awed by the pacing.

Brilliant! I can’t wait for the next book by this author. Excellent storytelling

A new Author. Joe K is new to me. Based on Five Decembers he’ll be on my reading list for a long time.

Very Good book. I enjoyed it. The book moves along. It’s a bit gory at times, with grisly murders. It’s interesting to be in 1941 to 1945. I recommend it.

Best detective book I’ve ever read. A must read
