Jackie Ishida, a young Japanese American woman, sets out to solve a decades-old crime in Los Angeles in this inspired detective story. Revoyr’s nuanced telling shows readers a side of an ever-evolving city, in all its diversity, that is seldom seen. The winner of a Lambda Literary Award and a finalist for an Edgar Award, Southland was named one of the Los Angeles Times’ best books of 2003.
