Description
On a crowded train from Pusan to Seoul, the brutal rape of a young mother sparks rage on the powder-keg peninsula of Korea, pitting Koreans against Americans and the Eighth Army brass against the truth. Eyewitness accounts indicate the culprit was most likely a US serviceman, but by the time Sergeants George Sueǫ and Ernie Bascom, US Army investigators, are called in, the rapist has disappeared and anti-American fervor in this proud Asian country is threatening to explode. George and Ernie search in vain for the culprit, all the while becoming entangled in the web of military apologists who deny that any Americans were involved, and the designs of a beautiful blonde musician who fronts an all-female country western band-a woman who is out to entertain the troops in more ways than one. Delay causes more tragedy-this time murder-and sets off a frantic search for a killer that stretches from the sizzling hot Demilitarized Zone to the cold waters of the Yellow Sea and introduces. With the help of legendary Korean detective Mr. Kill, Lieutenants George Sueǫ and Ernie Bascom embark on what may just be the most dangerous case of their careers.
