Publisher's Summary

Grace Park and Shawn Mathews share a city - Los Angeles - but seemingly little else. Coming from different generations and very different communities, their paths wouldn't normally cross at all. As Grace battles confusion over her elder sister's estrangement from their Korean-immigrant parents, Shawn tries to help his cousin Ray readjust to city life after years spent in prison.

But something in their past links these two families. As the city around them threatens to erupt into violence, echoing the worst days of the early 1990s, the lives of Grace and Shawn are set to collide in ways which will change them all forever. 

Beautifully written, and marked by its aching humanity as much as its growing sense of dread, Your House Will Pay is a powerful and urgent novel for today.

Critic Reviews

"A touching portrait of two families bound together by a split-second decision that tore a hole through an entire city." (Attica Locke)

"Steph Cha fearlessly explores the duality of LA's promise and betrayal, its vision of new beginnings and the brutal divisions that cut between race and class." (Walter Mosley)

"Believe the hype. Your House Will Pay is the goods. Sharply written, tragically and movingly relevant." (Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse)
