On a crowded train from Pusan to Seoul, the brutal rape of a young mother sparks rage on the powder-keg peninsula of Korea, pitting Koreans against Americans and the Eighth Army brass against the truth. Eyewitness accounts indicate the culprit was most likely a US serviceman, but by the time Sergeants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom, US Army investigators, are called in, the rapist has disappeared and anti-American fervor in this proud Asian country is threatening to explode.

George and Ernie search in vain for the culprit, all the while becoming entangled in the web of military apologists who deny that any Americans were involved, and the designs of a beautiful blonde musician who fronts an all-female country western band—a woman who is out to entertain the troops in more ways than one. Delay causes more tragedy—this time murder—and sets off a frantic search for a killer that stretches from the sizzling hot Demilitarized Zone to the cold waters of the Yellow Sea and introduces. With the help of legendary Korean detective Mr. Kill, Lieutenants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom embark on what may just be the most dangerous case of their careers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A wild trip…Direct, searing prose. A not-to-be-missed addition to the growing library of novels about Southeast Asia by people who know what they’re talking about.”

    John Burdett, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The suspense mounts, augmented by Bascom’s bad temper and very tough partner, in a fascinating place, when tensions among American military personnel and Korean civilians were high. Mix in the psycho profile of the villain, and Mr. Kill speeds along like a bullet train.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Richly illustrates how both loathsome and lucrative the American presence is to the Koreans…A vivid view of Asia, from the Demilitarized Zone to the Yellow Sea, and an insightful look at the era lift this fine entry.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This series is a must, not only for procedural fans but also for anyone who enjoys crime fiction set in distinctive international locales.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Another solid police procedural, grounded in muscular prose and enhanced by unique local color.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " I will go back and find the previous books and anticipate the next in this series. Great descriptions of Korea, excellent characters and a well pace plot. What more could I want? "

    " Limons descriptions of Korea, Koreans and the American military stationed there are fascinating to me....always a good mystery as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Eric Stone | 12/18/2011

    " Another in one of my favorite series of crime novels set in Asia. Not my favorite of the series, but still a very good, fun, interesting read that is also informative about South Korea in the 1970s. Martin Limon is one of the better, more conscientious crime writers today, but surprisingly unsung. "
