Two US Army criminal investigators delve into a twenty-year-old murder in South Korea in “easily the best military mysteries in print today” (Lee Child).
A Korean fortune-teller is haunted by a long-dead American soldier who wants his bones found and buried. A Latino soldier and the underage daughter of a white American officer are missing. Several notorious Korean gangsters who own bars in Itaewon—Seoul’s red light district—have been killed. American military police officers George Sueño and Ernie Bascom must dig deep into the bloody history of Itaewon in order to find out who killed the dead soldier, who’s taking revenge on the gang lords, and where to find the missing girl.
