Editorial Reviews


The writing is very good and there was clearly a lot of research put into this novel. It shows and makes the mysteries much more engaging. Add to this that there are many settings involved in the story, from WWII Germany to an Imperial Japanese sub in the 1940s Pacific to Mike's home of Hawaii. The author has a lot of affection for the customs of Hawaii and it shows.
Although there are action elements to this story, it is primarily a mystery. It gets very tangled, but it does so in an intriguing way, with a satisfying conclusion. 
Obake Neko is an excellent read and I highly recommend it. It's a fun ride that also has a satisfying emotional element. - Entrada Publishing                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
At every turn, history repeats itself, and real-life events that took place in the Pacific arena come to life under David Michael Gillespie's hand. Another strong note is the descriptions of place and history that lend a "you are there" feel to the story, whether it's in Germany, Japan, or the Pacific region. 
The result is a powerful story of intrigue, historical connections, war, and a father and son's efforts to solve a long-standing puzzle: perfect for fans of historical fiction and intrigue. - Midwest Book Review                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Gillespie is a talented writer with an ear for realistic dialogue. Even better, he's an obvious stickler for research. His familiarity with Hawaii is deep and believable, and passages describing the US and Japanese military are richly detailed without being overwhelming. And Gillespie introduces a large cast of interesting characters in both Hawaii and Japan. The plot moves inexorably to a surprise ending when Bud Brennan's secret is finally revealed. In all, this is a supremely exciting and satisfying read.- BlueInk 'Starred' Review

From the Back Cover

Even decades later, the Obake Neko and its legendary cargo are still worth killing over. Can Mike discover the truth and protect his dad before deadly assailants succeed in silencing Bud forever?
