After Ky Tran’s younger brother Denny is murdered inside a busy restaurant, she learns that the police are stumped by the case: a dozen people were at Lucky 8 restaurant when he died, but each of the bystanders claims to have seen nothing. As an antidote to grief and guilt, Ky is determined to track down the witnesses herself. Written by debut author Tracey Lien, “All That’s Left Unsaid” is a deeply emotional novel that demands to be read.
