To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In a Los Angeles frozen in fear of a Japanese invasion just before and after Pearl Harbor, author Joe Connolly introduces us to a government willing to forgive crime, even murder, in the name of 'public safety'. In this well-written noir novel, one cop tries to solve a crime that drops him into cultures as unable to understand or trust each other in 1941 as they are today. Southern California readers will especially enjoy reading about the World War II restaurants, parks and palisades that are still a part of our lives today.
