Praise for Ping-Pong Heart

“Excellent . . . This is a highly atmospheric novel full of well-developed characters and strong emotional situations. The locales are so vividly described that you can almost breathe in the dust and touch the decaying buildings.”
—Lansing State Journal

“Robbery, mayhem and murder are spiced by sardonic military humor in this lively thriller set in South Korea in 1974 when the Cold War was a good deal warmer.”
—The Washington Times

“Compelling . . . Major developments in the lives of Limón’s leads complement the intricate whodunit.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Limón’s insights into Korea’s history and culture, and into U.S. Army culture, just keep getting richer.”

“Limón’s 11th Americans-in-Korea procedural has grit, pace, and an authentic feel.”
—Kirkus Reviews 

“Series aficionados will welcome this 11th outing with its fast-moving convoluted crime and investigation. Newcomers don’t have to read the previous volumes to enjoy it either. Mystery readers who appreciate exotic settings, both in time and space, and who like quality buddy procedurals will admire Limón’s writing.”
—Library Journal 

Praise for The Ville Rat

The Wall Street Journal 

The Ville Rat, the [10th] in Limón’s series, confirms the author’s knack for creating sturdy plots, solid writing and well-rounded characters.”
The Seattle Times

“Pulse-pounding . . . This police procedural, with its unusual locale, admirable protagonists, and well-developed plot, stands as a superior entry in a consistently impressive series.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Often praised for his knowledge of Korean society and culture and the massive footprint of the U.S. Army on Korea, Limón has an outstanding series going, and this one may be the best installment yet.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“Sueño and Bascom’s [10th] appearance has vivid characters, and its searing portrait of the sins of our recent past bids fair to transcend the genre.”
Kirkus Reviews
