Buddha's Money

Buddha's Money
Martin Limón

A solid, atmospheric third outing from the author of the marvelous Jade Lady Burning. Limón's series stars two US Army MPs, stationed in Korea, who love the liquor, the business girls, and the constant tension their job imposes between violent abandon and steely discipline. A classic McGuffin chase for an ancient relic leads Bacomb and Sueño to meet the Lady Ahn, a stern and regal Korean whose ancestors were once China's Sung dynasty and who never, ever forgets this. An exceptional talent whose books deserve to be best-sellers.
