"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.

The type of novel that restores the word epicOne 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..Score: 5/5

Nazis in HonoluluAnd 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..Score: 5/5
