The CommanderBook - 2004

Simon and Schuster
After being unfairly denied promotion by a vindictive general, Air Force investigator Major Burton Webber resigned his commission in disgust. While working in his wife's shop outside South Korea's Osan Air Base, he's asked for help by an old friend from the service. A local Amerasian bar beauty has been savagely murdered in a lavish apartment -- and the powers that be want the case solved quickly and quietly.
But when his investigation points him toward the upper echelons of both the Korean and American governments, he realizes that he's being used as a pawn in a twisted international conspiracy of money, power, and murder -- a conspiracy in which Burton Webber has just outlived his usefulness....
