Sit on a quiet hillside at dawn among the wildflowers; take a picture of a car coming up a deserted highway from the south. Simple orders for Inspector O, until he realizes they have led him far, far off his department's turf and into a maelstrom of betrayal and death. North Korea's leaders are desperate to hunt down and eliminate anyone who knows too much about a series of decades-old kidnappings and murders-and Inspector O discovers too late that he has been sent into the chaos. This is a world where nothing works as it should, where the crimes of the past haunt the present, and where even the shadows are real. Author James Church weaves a story with beautifully spare prose and layered descriptions of a country and a people he knows by heart after decades as an intelligence officer.

"Set in North Korea, this novel combines detective fiction with a glimpse into a society and culture that will be unfamiliar to many listeners. When the main character, Inspector O, botches an assignment, he finds himself drawn into a feud between conflicting intelligence units. Narrator Feodor Chin successfully voices the rich cast of Korean characters using subtle inflections, giving an accent only to the Irish character. He delivers equal weight to the characters who are essential to the plot and the lesser players whose appearance helps create an authentic atmosphere. Chin's pace is perfectly pitched, and his soft delivery style allows the plot to gently unfold. K.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
