Description

George Sueno rose out of the barrios of East L.A. His partner, Ernie Bascom, escaped the mean streets of Detroit. And both have found a home in the U.S. Army - the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) in Korea. Their beat is Itaewon, the red-light district of Seoul. Together they've looked into every bar and brothel, making sure the bourbon is chilled...and the women hot.When a working girl offers them a hundred bucks to deliver a note to Cecil Whitcomb, a British member of the U.N. Honor Guard, Sueno and Bascom are happy to oblige. They figure not only is it a good deed, it's also easy money. But reality hits the next morning - in the form of Whitcomb's brutally mutilated corpse.Sueno and Bascom thought they were playing Cupid, but they were played for suckers. It cost one soldier his life, and it could land them in Leavenworth if they fail to find the killer. Suddenly the neon streets they once loved are a lurid and deadly labyrinth. For Whitcomb wasn't the first victim...nor will he be the last.Defying their superiors, the two CID agents plunge into a world of deception, betrayal, and paranoia. Their sole source of information is a thriving black market run by a ruthlessly efficient criminal network: the slicky boys.show more
