The Wandering Ghost (A Sergeants Sueño and Bascom Novel #5) (Paperback)

“Easily the best military mysteries in print today.” —Lee Child 

Corporal Jill Matthewson, the only female military police officer assigned to Camp Casey in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, is missing. US 8th Army CID agent Sergeant George Sueño and his partner, Ernie Bascom, are dispatched to locate her. They find that criminal activity abounds at Camp Casey, from black marketeering to murder. The investigation brings them face-toface with crooked officers, Korean civilians rioting over the death of one of their own, a schoolgirl run down by a speeding army truck, and her ghost, which has been seen wandering the premises.
Martin Limón retired from military service after twenty years in the US Army, including ten years in Korea. He is the author of ten books in the Sueño and Bascom series, including Jade Lady Burning, The Iron Sickle, The Ville Rat, and Ping-Pong Heart. He lives near Seattle.
