Description

Praise for GI Confidential

"Robust, socially alert, and perceptive."
--The Seattle Times

"Limon's stories of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) criminal investigators George Sueno and Ernie Bascom provide a vivid look at the Korea of the past."
--Korea Times

"Stellar . . . Lim�n does his usual outstanding job of combining clever plotting and period detail with sympathetic, flawed leads. This series shows no sign of losing momentum."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"GI Confidential is one of Lim�n's best to date in a series that never fails to entertain . . . Lim�n's writing style is casual and humorous, and his military experience, which included a decade in Korea, lends an unmistakable realism to the atmosphere of his novels that brings readers back for more each time."
--New York Journal of Books

"Sue�o and Bascom's lively 14th investigation is long on action, gritty dialogue, and period authenticity."
--Kirkus Reviews

"GI Confidential is one of the best in a series that gets better and better. You feel close to our two heroes, the themes are bigger and more complex, and even with all that, Lim�n brings it all in with a tight, well paced tale. I'm already looking forward to the next one."
--Mystery People (Austin, TX)

Praise for the Sue�o and Bascom Investigations

"Lim�n is one of the best military writers ever. His stories are addictive entertainment today--and valuable slices of history tomorrow."
--Lee Child

"An enduring and freshly relevant series . . . Lim�n, himself a former US Army man who served 10 years in Korea, writes with knowledge of the travails and rewards of military life."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Lim�n is an expert guide to Korea and the US army whose passionate commitment to his subject is expressed in direct, searing prose."
--John Burdett, international bestselling author of Bangkok 8

"As always, the author vividly contrasts adventures in the seamy side of Seoul's nightlife with a sensitive appreciation for Korea's ancient culture."
--The Seattle Times

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

"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

"Lim�n's fiction comes from personal experience, with some obvious parallels between his own life and main protagonist Sue�o's. As well as sharing a Hispanic heritage, Lim�n also served in Korea, first arriving in 1968 . . . Rare foreign fiction set in Korea."
--The Korea Times

"Superb . . . Lim�n has never been better at incorporating a logical mystery plot into the politics of his chosen time and place."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
