Description


The second Sergeant George Sueño investigation, follow-up to the New York Times Notable Jade Lady Burning

The Slicky Boys rule the back alleys of 1970s Seoul. They can kill a man in a thousand gruesome ways. And you’ll never even see them coming. In order to combat the poverty facing South Korea, they sneak onto well-stocked American military compounds to steal, murder anyone in their way, and vanish. US Army Sergeant George Sueño and his partner, Ernie Bascom, take on the perilous mission of infiltrating this underground criminal syndicate when an innocent favor for an Itaewon bar girl leads to murder.

Praise For…


Praise for Slicky Boys

“It’s great to have these two mavericks back. . . . Mr. Limón writes with gruff respect for the culture of Seoul and with wonderful bleak humor, edged in pain, about G.I. life in that exotic city.”
The New York Times Book Review 

“Combining the grim routine of a modern police procedural with the cliffhanging action of a thrilling movie serial, Slicky Boys is full of sharp observations and unexpected poignancy.”
The Wall Street Journal 

“There’s atmosphere to spare here and enough suspense to please. A colorful thriller.”
Publishers Weekly 

“An irresistible tale!”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer 

“Two of the more memorable sleuths in the modern mystery canon.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer 

“The writing is plain and sinewy, the characterizations are quietly brilliant and the moral vision is as cold as a Seoul bar girl’s gaze.”
The Oregonian 


Praise for the George Sueño and Ernie Bascom series

“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.”
—Lee Child 
 
"Brilliant—imbued with affecting characters, a morally knotty storyline, and a last chapter that just plain stuns."
—Maureen Corrigan, NPR, Best Crime Fiction of the Year

“Limón, who was stationed in Korea for the Army, writes with empathy for the Korean people as well for the young GIs dropped into a foreign culture.”
The Boston Globe
 
“[Limón] vividly contrasts adventures in the seamy side of Seoul’s nightlife with a sensitive appreciation for Korea’s ancient culture.”
The Seattle Times
 
“This series is a must not only for procedural fans, but also for anyone who enjoys crime fiction set in distinctive international locales.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“[The Ville Rat’s] searing portrait of the sins of our recent past bids fair to transcend the genre.” 
—Kirkus Reviews
