San Piedro Island, north of Puget Sound, is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbors watched. Gripping, tragic, and densely atmospheric, Snow Falling on Cedars is a masterpiece of suspense -- one that will leave you shaken and changed. Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award.

"Haunting.... A whodunit complete with courtroom maneuvering and surprising turns of evidence and at the same time a mystery, something altogether richer and deeper."--Los Angeles Times

Listen to this excerpt from the Random House audio release of Snow Falling on Cedars, read by B. D. Wong.
