Product description


Praise for The Wandering Ghost

"A winner . . . Altogether engaging."
--The Washington Post Book World

"Vivid . . . Limón's crisp prose evokes a world that is at once exotic, dangerous and forlorn."
--The Seattle Times

"Martin Limón does what the best storytellers do: take you away to a brand new world. The Wandering Ghost is that world, a fully engrossing story that pins you to your seat until the last page is turned."
--Michael Connelly

"Easily the best military mysteries in print today."
--Lee Child

"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

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

"Combines a vivid recreation of recent history with admirable local color."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A fine military mystery."
--Publishers Weekly

Throughout this critically acclaimed series, Limón has displayed a remarkable talent for weaving his background knowledge of the country into his plots.

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.
