Product Details


Praise for Slicky Boys

“It’s great to have these two mavericks back. . . . Mr. Limón writes with gruff respect for the culture of Seoul and with wonderful bleak humor, edged in pain, about G.I. life in that exotic city.”
The New York Times Book Review 

“Combining the grim routine of a modern police procedural with the cliffhanging action of a thrilling movie serial, Slicky Boys is full of sharp observations and unexpected poignancy.”
The Wall Street Journal 

“There’s atmosphere to spare here and enough suspense to please. A colorful thriller.”
Publishers Weekly 

“An irresistible tale!”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer 

“Two of the more memorable sleuths in the modern mystery canon.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer 

“The writing is plain and sinewy, the characterizations are quietly brilliant and the moral vision is as cold as a Seoul bar girl’s gaze.”
The Oregonian 

Praise for the George Sueño and Ernie Bascom series

“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”
—Lee Child 
“Brilliant—imbued with affecting characters, a morally knotty storyline, and a last chapter that just plain stuns.”
—Maureen Corrigan, NPR, Best Crime Fiction of the Year

“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
“[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

“[The Ville Rat’s] searing portrait of the sins of our recent past bids fair to transcend the genre.” 
—Kirkus Reviews
