How much can murder buy on the black market in 1974 South Korea?

When a young Korean woman is found strangled on the frozen banks of the Sonyu River with only a carefully calligraphed poem on her person, it looks like an American serviceman might have been involved, so Sergeants George Sueño and Ernie Bascom of the US 8th Army CID are called to investigate. As they begin to ask questions, George and Ernie come into direct contact with the US Army’s 2nd Infantry Division, a disciplined and often brutal force that won’t stand for outside officers questioning its men. But George and Ernie aren’t exactly known for going out of their way to avoid stepping on US Army toes, and this is no exception.
