Imagine that there are American MIAs who chose to remain missing after the Vietnam War. Imagine that there is a family in which four generations of strong, alluring women have shared a mysterious connection to an outlandish figure from Japanese folklore.

This is a book about identity, masquerade and disguise, celebrating existence and challenging our ideas about it. To say much more about a novel as fresh and surprising as Villa incognito would run the risk of diluting the sheer fun of reading it.
