The Mysteries to Die For Book Club led by Elsie Souza. This month we’re discussing Jade Lady Burning by Martin Limon.

Meet Sergeants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom in their first investigation, set in 1970s South Korea. Almost twenty years after the end of the Korean War, the US Military is still present throughout South Korea, and tensions run high. When Pak Ok-suk, a young Korean woman, is found brutally murdered in a torched apartment in the Itaewon red-light district of Seoul, it looks like it might be the work of her American soldier boyfriend. Sergeants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom, Military Police for the US 8th Army, are assigned to the case, but they have nothing to go on other than a tenuous connection to an infamous prostitute. As repressed resentments erupt around them, the pair sets out on an increasingly dangerous quest to find evidence that will exonerate their countryman.
