When Evan's father dies suddenly, Evan finds a hand-bound yellow book on his desk--a book his dad had been reading when he passed away. The book is the diary of a Japanese soldier stranded on a small Pacific island in WWII. Why was his father reading it? What is in this account that Evan's grandfather, whom Evan has never met before, fears so much that he will do anything to prevent its being seen? And what could this possibly mean for Evan? In a pulse-quickening mystery evoking the elusiveness of truth and the endurance of wars passed from father to son, this engrossing novel is a suspenseful, at times terrifying read from award-winning author Tim Wynne-Jones.

This was my first time reading a novel written by Wynne-Jones. I like his easy-to-read writing style. "The Emperor..." is unique, thought-provoking (could this be real?) cleverly crafted to weave back and forth from present day to a war-torn time and kept my interest. Very nice flow chapter to chapter and realistic, moving character relationships through to the end. So many books have a limp, disappointing ending -- this one did not. I am an adult reader.
