       Additional Information  
     
      Sit on a quiet hillside at dawn among the wildflowers; take a picture of a car coming up a deserted highway from the south.

    Simple orders for Inspector O, until he realizes they have led him far, far off his departmentís turf and into a maelstrom of betrayal and death. North Koreaís leaders are desperate to hunt down and eliminate anyone who knows too much about a series of decadeís-old kidnappings and murders---and Inspector O discovers too late he has been sent into the chaos. This is a world where nothing works as it should, where the crimes of the past haunt the present, and where even the shadows are real.
    Author James Church weaves a story with beautifully spare prose and layered descriptions of a country and a people he knows by heart after decades as an intelligence officer.
