Don Mitchell’s Shibai : Remembering Jane Britton's Murder starts off as a murder mystery, with a novel twist: the narrator is a suspect. As his story unfolds, he conveys the frustration, anger, and self-doubt that comes from being haunted for decades by the unsolved killing of a friend. And when the mystery is solved, one question remains: Why did this stay with him for all these years? Shibai takes the reader on a journey through the peripheral damage caused by years of not knowing. It is, ultimately, a story of the damage done by doubt, and the power of friendships in the face of loss.
