Praise

Praise for Mr. Kill

“The suspense mounts, augmented by Bascom’s bad temper and very tough partner, in a fascinating place, when tensions among American military personnel and Korean civilians were high. Mix in the psycho profile of the villain, and Mr. Kill speeds along like a bullet train.” Grade: A- 
Cleveland Plain Dealer

“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 lift this fine entry.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A moral switch-back ride from the Korean DMZ to the Yellow Sea. Limón’s intrepid team of Mr. Kill, the local sleuth, together with Sueño and Bascom, those rough housing army investigators, take us on a wild trip to find the white man who raped the girl on the Blue Train, while the whole country burns with indignation. Limón is an expert guide to Korea and the US army whose passionate commitment to his subject is expressed in direct, searing prose. A not-to-be-missed addition to the growing library of novels about Southeast Asia by people who know what they are talking about.”
—John Burdett, New York Times bestselling author of Bangkok 8

“Another solid police procedural, grounded in muscular prose and enhanced by unique local color.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The interplay among the three detectives provides an intriguing view of two cultures . . . The story, while an engaging mystery, is particularly notable for providing an evocative map of South Korea and offers insights into two complex cultures: Korean society and military life.”
—Reviewing the Evidence
