The pair of GI cops Martin LimÃ³n first introduced in Jade Lady Burning, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, are back with a vengeance in their latest adventures in Seoul and the sin cities surrounding the capital in the 1970s. While North Korea menaces and Vietnam burns, these two weave through back alleys and bordellos, trying to tip the scales of justice back in the right direction.|
This time they are not only pursuing criminals, they're chasing themselves. Homicidal thieves have gotten hold of SueÃ±o's badge and are using it to lull their victims just long enough to strike-with his gun. That they are murderers makes it that much worse for the dynamic duo. The army wants its equipment accounted for and the ID and weapon recovered. George and Ernie want to recover their reputation, such as it is. And stop the killings.
