Fun detective thrillers set in 1970s Seoul, with two maverick US military policeman on the trail of some pretty gruesome criminals, hanging out in the bars of Itaewon, trawling the murky depths of the Korean underworld and generally stirring things up. The author is a retired member of the US military and spent some time in Korea. A fourth novel, The Door to Bitterness, was published in late 2005 (not yet available in paperback). Highly recommended holiday reading.
