The Korean War has been over for two decades, but as this gritty, fast-paced series proves, there's still plenty of danger on the peninsula. Drawing on his own experiences as an army reporter, Martin Limón re-creates 1970s Korea, chronicling the investigations of Sergeants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom, Military Police for the U.S. 8th Army.
On a crowded train to Seoul from Pusan, a Korean woman is assaulted, and the culprit was a white man, most likely a U.S. serviceman. It's an important case, yet George Sueño and Ernie Bascom have been given the frivolous job of assisting a country band whose supplies have been stolen. But when a second Korean woman is attacked—and this time ends up dead—8th Army can't ignore the rapist anymore. With the help of the legendary Korean investigator known as Mr. Kill, George and Ernie go against orders to embark on their 7th case (following G.I. Bones), quite likely to be the most dangerous of their careers.
