Synopsis

Synopsis

“ Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”—Lee Child

“[A] winner.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Martin Limón has crafted some of the finest military mysteries on offer, and The Wandering Ghost will only enhance his reputation.”—BookPage

“Vivid.”—The Seattle Times

“Setting the standard for military crime fiction, Limón’s compelling stories of murder, greed, and abuse of power are set off by the Korean culture and the 1970s atmosphere.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“Combines a vivid recreation of recent history with admirable local color.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] fine military mystery.”—Publishers Weekly

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.

Martin Limón is the author of four previous novels, Jade Lady Burning, Slicky Boys, Buddha’s Money, and The Door to Bitterness, all available from Soho Crime. His debut novel, Jade Lady Burning, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
