Praise

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

“Limón’s fiction comes from personal experience, with some obvious parallels between his own life and main protagonist Sueño’s. As well as sharing a Hispanic heritage, Limón also served in Korea, first arriving in 1968 . . . Rare foreign fiction set in Korea.”
—The Korea Times

“Superb . . . Limón 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 Limón 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 Limón again hits the target with his 13th military murder mystery.”
—Critics on the Aisle

Praise for the Sueño and Bascom Investigations

 
“Limón is one of the best military writers ever. His stories are addictive entertainment today—and valuable slices of history tomorrow.”
—Lee Child
 
“An enduring and freshly relevant series . . . Limón, 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
 
 “Limón 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.”
The Seattle Times
 
“Altogether engaging.”
The Washington Post Book World

“A fast-paced, action-packed yarn that will keep you glued to your seat from the first page to the last.”
San Antonio Express-News

“An enduring and freshly relevant series . . . Limón, 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
