Rating: 4 stars

"And remember always: Blue for safety, yellow is warning, red means danger." In this unusual mystery, Hannah has come to spend the winter in Japan while her mother does some touring for work. She is staying with Japanese family friends and one day the father receives a box from a friend that contains an old card game and toys from a long ago time as well as a mysterious sounding riddle. The arrival of these items trigger the ghost of a boy named Kai who begins haunting Hannah and whom Hannah and Miki quickly relate to the mysterious riddle. With the help of neighbor Hiro, the kids begin unraveling the clues in the riddle, which takes them to different historical sites throughout the city of Kanazawa and encounters with more ghosts and secrets. Can a few kids help a ghost finally find peace? A very interesting and suspenseful mystery in a unique setting, where the past and the present of Japan merge.
