This grisly, terrifying thriller follows CID Agents George SueNo and Ernie Bascom across the Korean Peninsula in their search for a lost artifact South Korea, 1970s: Retired Army officer Herman Burkowicz has quite a lucrative setup smuggling rare Korean artifacts. But then his nine-year-old foster daughter, Mi-ja, is abducted, and her kidnappers demand a ransom Burkowicz doesn't have: a priceless jade skull from the age of Genghis Khan. SueNo and Bascom-more accustomed to chasing felons and black marketeers in the back alleys of Itaewon than ancient treasures-go in over their heads as they agree to search for the skull, a journey that will lead them to a crime that threatens the fragile peace between South Korea and the US Army units living on its Korean soil.
