Description

On a crowded train to Seoul from Pusan, a Korean woman is trapped in the bathroom and brutally raped in front of her children. Eyewitness account indicate the culprit was a white man, most likely a US serviceman. By the time Sergeant George Sueño of the US 8th Army is called in to investigate, the rapist has disappeared, and the Korean witnesses have had a chance to get very angry about the situation--and all it represents. Many Koreans are resentful of the continued American presence in Korea, and George has a delicate situation on his hands.

Of course, the US Army wants to do what they can to ensure they are not connected to the crime. If he wants to see justice done, George is going to have to carry out his investigation against the direct orders of his own office, who have assigned him and his partner, Ernie Bascom, a frivolous job of tagging along with an all-female American country band and investigating their missing supplies. But when a second Korean woman is attacked--and this time ends up dead--8th Army can't ignore the serial rapist anymore. With the help of the legendary Korean investigator known as Mr. Kill, George and Ernie embark on what may just be the most dangerous case of their careers.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 31, 2011 – Set in South Korea in 1974, Limón’s excellent seventh mystery featuring U.S. Army investigators George Sueño and Ernie Bascom (after 2009’s G.I. Bones) richly illustrates how both loathsome and lucrative the American presence is to the Koreans. When Sueño and Bascom look into the rape of a young Korean mother in a bathroom aboard a crowded train traveling from Pusan to Seoul, witnesses claim the rapist was a U.S. serviceman, which the Army tries to deny. After a Korean woman is raped and murdered on the same train, the two rough-hewn sergeants are joined by enigmatic Korean Inspector Gil, who appears to be a mild-mannered Confucian gentleman, but lives up to his ruthless nickname, “Mr. Kill.” Meanwhile, the investigators’ attention is diverted to protecting members of a popular female country and western band who are concerned about peeping toms and petty thefts of equipment. A vivid view of Asia, from the Demilitarized Zone to the Yellow Sea, and an insightful look at the era lift this fine entry.

Mr Kill

The character names are a bit unusual but the story line is intriguing. The tale steadily builds intensity as the reader gets deeper into the novel. A good read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
