Blog friend Tracy over at her Bitter Tea and Mystery blog alerted me to this author back in December 2014 when she reviewed Slicky Boys.
I was conflicted over whether I ought to take a pass, as let’s face it I have more books than I can sensibly hope to read in the next thirty years anyway. In the end I bought the first two, probably persuaded in part by the Korean setting and the review linked above.
The series will be 10 books long with the publication of The Ville Rat this coming October, plus there was a short story collection – Nightmare Range – published in 2013. I ought really to be patting myself on the back for the remarkable restraint I have shown!
I will see how these two go before taking up more in the series!
Martin Limon served for 20-odd years in the US military, including 10 years spent in Korea. He now lives in Seattle. I can't see that he has his own website.
The Korean police should have been responsible for investigating the bizarre killing of Miss Pak. But, her amorous associations with American servicemen in Seoul also made her death US army business, and sergeants Ernie Bascom and George Sueno are on the case.
Slicky Boys (1997)
In the Criminal Investigation Division of the US Army in Korea, George Sueno and Ernie Bascom are pulled into the Slicky Boy culture they barely understand. Checking into every bar to ensure the bourbon is chilled, they are drawn into a murder that could end their careers, or their lives.
