The Korean Demilitarized Zone, 1970s: A battered corpse is found a few feet north of the line dividing North and South Korea. When 8th Army CID Agents George Sueno and Ernie Bascom are ordered by superiors to pull the body to South Korean side, they have no idea of the international conflict the action will spark. Before war breaks out, they must discover who killed Corporal Noh Jong-bae, a young Korean civilian augmented to the US Army who had few enemies. But the murderer could be from either side of the DMZ, and if it turns out to be North Korea, how can two US military agents interrogate witnesses? What George and Ernie discover gets them pulled off the case, but they continue to look into Corporal Noh's death against orders, fearing they've put the wrong man behind bars.

"A divided Korea is the 1970s backdrop of this well-written audiobook, narrated by Timothy Andres Pabon. Army Criminal Investigation Division agents George Sue–o and Ernie Bascom are trying to to solve the murder of a South Korean soldier near the border between North and South Korea. High-ranking officers will accept a wrongful conviction if that means avoiding a confrontation with the North. Key to the book is the relationship between Sue–o and Bascom, which Pabon captures nicely. The story is told through the thoughtful, low-key Sue–o. Bascom carries a bit of a drawl, and secondary characters speak with the variety of accents that might be found in a mixed bag of Americans and Koreans. The investigators are close, complementary colleagues, and that comes through in the telling. G.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
