A novel by

 
 
South Korea, 1974: A young Korean woman is found strangled to death on the frozen banks of the Sonyu River with only a carefully calligraphed poem on her person. Sergeants George Sueno and Ernie Bascom, agents in the US Eighth Army CID, are called in by the formidable KNP detective Gil Kwon-up to investigate.

As they begin to investigate, George and Ernie come into direct contact with the US Army's Second Infantry Division, a disciplined and often brutal force that won't stand for outside officers questioning its men. But George and Ernie aren't exactly known for going out of their way to avoid stepping on US Army toes, and this is no exception.

A pair of likable protagonists who often discover and expose crime within their own ranks. A rarity in fiction that looks closely at daily life in 1970s South Korea, with American troops stationed there in the wake of the war.
