Twenty years ago, Martin LimĆ³n published his first mystery
story featuring Sergeant George SueĆ±o, a young Mexican
American army detective stationed on the US 8th Army base in
South Korea in the early 1970s, the heart of the Cold War.
George and his investigating partner, the rowdy and
short-fused Sergeant Ernie Bascom, are assigned cases in
which the 8th Army has come into conflict with local Korean
law enforcementāoften incidents in which American soldiers,
who are not known for being on their best behavior in their
Asian host country, have committed a crime. George SueĆ±o's
job is partially to solve crimes, but mostly to cover top
brass's backside and make sure the US Army doesn't look bad.
Thoughtful, observant George, who is conversant in Korean,
constantly faces difficult choices about whether to follow
his orders or his conscience.
Nine critically acclaimed novels later, Soho Crime is
releasing a collection of Martin LimĆ³n's award-winning short
stories featuring Sergeants SueĆ±o and Bascom. The stories
within have been published over the last twenty years in a
variety of magazines, mostly in Alfred Hitchcock, but have
never before been available in book form. This beautifully
produced limited-edition hardcover volume is sure to attract
both critical attention and to appeal to collectors. A
must-have for literary mystery readers.
