Drafted by his son-in-law Lloyd, the Dodgers' head grounds keeper, to help out with preparing the field, Mas is there on a day that the Japanese and Korean teams take batting practice in front of assembled media prior to their series of games. Afterwards, one of the reporters, a particularly rude Japanese middle-aged man named Tomo Itai, drops dead of an apparent heart attack. But police immediately suspect murder. From baseball players and fellow journalists whom Itai has feuded with to right-wing Japanese thugs and Korean civil rights activists, there are many possible suspects. When Yuki Kimura, a protege of Itai and the grandson of an old friend of Mas's from Hiroshima (and a key character in the first book in the series,\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Summer of the Big Bachi (book)\" title=\"Summer of the Big Bachi (book)\">\n   Summer of the Big Bachi\n  </a>\n </i>\n ), shows up to investigate the case and asks for Mas's help, the old gardener cannot refuse. In between investigations, Mas also ponders the status of his deepening relationship with Genessee Howard, introduced as a love interest in earlier books, and with his once estranged daughter Mari and her family, who now live with him.\n</p>\n<p>\n As usual, references to the Japanese American World War II experience abound.
