Reviews

Praise for The Line

"A fascinating inside look at Korean culture as well as the world of overseas Army personnel in the late 1970s."
--Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

"The thirteenth novel in this outstanding series is one of Martin Limon's best . . . [Limon] brings an authenticity to the stories of soldiers caught in the machinery of the post-War era . . . It is all told with an irreverent humor, yet the tension never lets up."
--Deadly Pleasures Magazine

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

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

"One of the most powerful episodes in an always-strong series."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"[The Line] entertains with its easy banter and fascinates with deep insight into its precise historical moment."
--Kirkus Reviews

"I have read every Lim贸n book since 1992's Jade Lady Burning, and I have every intention of continuing to do so; they are that good."
--Bruce Tierney, BookPage

"Acclaimed author and army vet Martin Lim贸n again hits the target with his 13th military murder mystery."
--Critics on the Aisle

Praise for the Sue帽o and Bascom Investigations

"An enduring and freshly relevant series . . . Lim贸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贸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."

"Altogether engaging."
