Praise for Jade Lady Burning

A New York Times Notable Book

“It is not often that so impressive a debut as Jade Lady Burning appears . . . Compassionately written, searing in its intensity. Without ever trying to be ‘literary,’ this novel achieves the stature of literature.”
The New York Times Book Review

“[George] has a detailed eye that allows the reader to fully appreciate the people and places around him without feeling bogged down with descriptions. This is a story that twists and turns . . . It’s realistic and fun, but doesn’t shy away from the reality of their situation. Definitely something to check out!”
—The Tulsa Examiner


Praise for the George Sueño and Ernie Bascom series

“What a great gift any of Limon’s six mysteries starring Army Sgts. George Sueno 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, NPR
 
“Limón, who was stationed in Korea for the Army, writes with empathy for the Korean people as well for the young GIs dropped into a foreign culture.”
The Boston Globe
 
“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”
—Lee Child 

“[Limón] vividly contrasts adventures in the seamy side of Seoul’s nightlife with a sensitive appreciation for Korea’s ancient culture.”
The Seattle Times
 
“This series is a must not only for procedural fans, but also for anyone who enjoys crime fiction set in distinctive international locales.”
Booklist, Starred Review
 
“Excellent . . . A vivid view of Asia, from the Demilitarized Zone to the Yellow Sea, and an insightful look at the era.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 
“[The Ville Rat’s] searing portrait of the sins of our recent past bids fair to transcend the genre.” 
—Kirkus Reviews
