Suzy Park is a twenty-nine-year-old Korean American interpreter for the New York City court system who makes a startling and ominous discovery about her family history that will send her on a chilling quest. Five years prior, her parents—hardworking greengrocers who forfeited personal happiness for their children's gain—were brutally murdered in an apparent robbery of their store. But the glint of a new lead entices Suzy into the dangerous Korean underworld, and ultimately reveals the mystery of her parents’ homicide.

The Interpreter' offers no embellishments, no rewards to lighten the characters' burdens or make their suffering worthwhile. The novel's power comes from its steadfast gaze upon the loss and sorrow of a family's struggle to rise in the world.—The Boston Globe
