It’s just Evan and his father. There’s a grandfather somewhere but all Evan knows about him is what his father said. “Your grandfather is a murderer.”
When his father dies, Evan has no one to call except the murderous grandfather. Before he arrives, Evan finds a book on his father’s desk – a diary of a Japanese soldier, stranded on a Pacific island during World War II.
Who was the American stranded with him? What did it mean to his father? And why does his grandfather want the book so badly?
