Aileen Huynh delivers a compelling performance as Ky Tran, a relentless journalist in pursuit of answers surrounding her brother's brutal murder. Huynh's nuanced portrayal adds depth to the narrative. As Ky unravels layers of intrigue, Huynh expertly conveys the emotional toll of her investigation. Listeners are drawn into an unfiltered view of the period after the War in Vietnam, as well as the Vietnamese immigrant experience in Australia, centered around Sydney. Through Ky, and Minnie, a childhood friend who is forever in Ky's mind, narrator Huynh recounts Ky's pursuit of fearful and reluctant witnesses. Listeners also hear the perspectives of others Ky taps through the performances of Yen Nguyen and Amelia Nguyen. The result is a beautifully written, well-narrated story of cultural struggles and familial expectations. E.Q. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
