Reviewers hailed Patrick A. Davis's previous novel, The Colonel, for its "jet-speed pace" (Orlando Sentinel) and its "gripping twists and turns" (Publishers Weekly). And Kirkus agreed: "His third high-powered outing confirms that Davis delivers the goods."

Unfairly passed over for promotion, disillusioned Air Force investigator Major Burton Webber has resigned from the service to work in his Korean wife's jewelry store, located in the red-light district outside South Korea's Osan Air Base. When an old friend, the commanding general's executive officer, approaches him about solving the brutal murder of a beautiful Amerasian bar girl, Webber reluctantly agrees.

After discovering the shocking secret behind the killing, Webber finds his hunt for the murderer blocked by those at the highest level of the Korean and American governments. With reputations and lives teetering in the balance, Webber searches for the truth, never knowing if he is to be the next victim...or whom to trust.
