Corporal Jill Matthewson, the only female military police officer assigned to Camp Casey in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, is missing. Sueño and Bascom are dispatched from Eighth Army headquarters in Seoul to help locate her. They discover a murder that has been concealed, rampant black marketeering, and corruption and confront crooked officers, rioting Korean civilians, and the wandering ghost of a schoolgirl who has been run down by a speeding army truck.
