Product description


Praise for The Nine-Tailed Fox

"An enduring and freshly relevant series by Martin Limón . . . Mr. Limón, himself a former U.S. Army man who served 10 years in Korea, writes with knowledge of the travails and rewards of military life."
--The Wall Street Journal

​"​Limón provides a highly enjoyable, multi-layered, dynamic tale--a nifty crime novel full of striking images of a bygone time in Korean history.​"​
--​Lansing State Journal ​

​"​Clever plotting and superior characterizations lift this suspenseful, atmospheric installment.​"
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review ​

"As always, Limón brews a fine mix of Cold War world affairs, army life, and Korean society and culture."
--Booklist ​

--The Seattle Times

"The Nine-Tailed Fox is a fast paced, action-packed yarn that will keep you glued to your seat from the first page to the last.
-- San Antonio Express-News​

"A fast-paced, enjoyable story that is fun and easy to read . . . if you love a fast-paced, humorous crime novel, don't miss it."
​​--New York Journal of Books

"Fast moving and entertaining . . . another solid reading experience."
--​Deadly Pleasures

Praise for the Sueño and Bascom series

--The Wall Street Journal

"What a great gift any of Limón's six mysteries starring Army Sgts. George Sueño and Ernie Bascom would make for those mystery lovers who haven't yet discovered them! . . . Imbued with affecting characters, a morally knotty storyline, and a last chapter that just plain stuns."
--Maureen Corrigan,

"Limón has a profound ability to depict everyday South Korean civilian life in a police state . . . He doesn't just describe the clamor and sweat inside an ex-pat bar crowded with GIs. He drops you onto the bar stool and hands you a glass."
--The Arizona Republic

"Pulse-pounding . . . This police procedural, with its unusual locale, admirable protagonists, and well-developed plot, stands as a superior entry in a consistently impressive series."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Often praised for his knowledge of Korean society and culture and the massive footprint of the US Army on Korea, Limón has an outstanding series going, and this one may be the best installment yet."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Limón engages readers by blending Korean history, lore and geography with a tightly developed plot . . . Sueño and Bascom are a fascinating pair who add occasional levity without overshadowing the gravity of the novel's subject matter."
--Shelf Awareness --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

At seventeen, Martin Limon joined the army and served briefly as a reporter for the Pacific Stars & Stripes in Seoul, Korea. During five tours in Korea, he studied the language, traveled the country from the DMZ to the Yellow Sea, and was personally embroiled in the clash of cultures on this trip-wire edge of the American empire. His first novel, Jade Lady Burning, was published by Soho Press in 1992 and was selected as a Notable Book of the Year by the New York Times. The series features 8th Army detectives George Sueno, from East L.A., and Ernie Bascom, a native of the suburbs of Detroit.
