Seattle based reporter whose German family has a long history in Japan traces his family roots in that country. Engrossing and highly enjoyable read.

This is a really, great read. I enjoyed it from the first page to the last. Mr. Helm's family history is dramatic and compelling. Mr. Helm is also able to enfuse the history of the time to make this a story, I could not stop reading. I'm looking forward to his next work.
