Praise for the Sueño and Bascom series:

“Setting the standard for military crime fiction, Limón’s compelling stories of murder, greed, and abuse of power are set off by the Korean culture and 1970s atmosphere.”—Library Journal, starred review

“Altogether engaging.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Combining the grim routine of a modern police procedural with the cliff-hanging action of a thriller movie.”—The Wall Street Journal

“It’s great to have these two mavericks back.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”—Lee Child

“Martin Limón does what the best storytellers do: take you away to a brand new world.”—Michael Connelly

A Korean fortune-teller is being bothered by a dead American soldier who wants his bones found and buried. An underage officer’s daughter is missing together with a Latino soldier. Several of the leading Korean gangsters who own the bars in the ville have been killed. Sueño and Bascom of Military Intelligence must go back to the founding of Itaewon, Seoul’s red-light district, in order to learn who killed the soldier, who’s taking revenge on the gang lords, and where to find the missing girl.

Martin Limón is the author of numerous stories about his army police duo as well as five previous novels, Jade Lady Burning (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), Slicky Boys, Buddha’s Money, The Door to Bitterness, and The Wandering Ghost, all available from Soho Crime. He lives near Seattle.

Military intelligence isn't always an oxymoron.

A Korean fortune teller is being "bothered" by a long dead American soldier who wants his bones found and buried. An underage officer's daughter and a Latino soldier she was secretly dating are missing. Several of the most notorious of the Korean gangsters who own bars in Itaewon - Seoul's red light district - have been killed.
Sergeants George Sueno and Ernie Bascom, Military Intelligence MPs, must go back to the founding of Itaewon - "the ville" - in order to find out who the dead soldier was and where his body has been hidden, as well as who murdered him and why. In the course of this investigation, they discover a connection to the ganglord killings and the killers' motive, and to the case of the missing girl.
