Two daredevil flyers and the young woman they both love lie at the heart of this mesmerizing novel about the Japanese internment during World War II, from the author of The Other Typist and Three-Martini Lunch.
Louis Thorn and Harry Yamada are boyhood friends divided by family differences. But their childhood camaraderie reignites when they are convinced to perform death-defying tricks as Eagle & Crane in Earl Shaw’s Flying Circus —until their mutual attraction to Shaw’s stepdaughter, smart and beautiful Ava Brooks, complicates things anew.
Then Pearl Harbor is bombed in December 1941 and Harry is imprisoned in a Japanese American internment camp. When a Shaw stunt plane crashes soon after Harry and his father leave the camp without permission, the two bodies discovered are assumed to be theirs. But the details don’t add up, and no one involved seems willing to tell the truth.
An absorbing mystery and story of love, Eagle & Crane explores race, family, and loyalty in a fraught era of American history.
