Praise

Praise for The Joy Brigade

“Fans of James Church’s Inspector O novels will enjoy Limón’s eighth cold war historical featuring Sgt. George Sueño . . . Limón keeps things moving, and the intrigue, twists, and betrayals will be both familiar and welcome to fans of classic spy fiction in the le Carré tradition.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This is a terrific series of historical mysteries, and The Joy Brigade is a very good entry . . . The emotional, and really quite thrilling, rollercoaster ride that George Sueño takes on his journey is shared with the reader from start to finish.”
—Mysterious Reviews

“Limon delivers all the thrills and intrigue a story like this promises, as well as a look at North Korea during the period.“
Mystery People


Praise for the George Sueño and Ernie Bascom series

“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”
—Lee Child 
 
“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
 
“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
 
“[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
