With North Korea so prevalent in the news, this superb 13th outing of 8th Army investigators Sueno and Bascom from former soldier-turned-author Martin Limon, clearly shows the fragile nature of the DMZ in the 1970s, with its immense pressure for peace coupled with volatile situations so palpable and real, you could feel the tension in the air. At first, an investigation into a murdered South Korean soldier’s death turns into a mystery surrounding an American officer’s missing wife. Readers will surely appreciate Limon’s penchant for using all those military acronyms and blessedly (!) with occasional complete nomenclature for the non-military mystery buffs. This outing can be a standalone, but will inspire fans of this investigating pair to read all the others in the series. So topical and relevant, Limon nailed this mission! - Maureen
