The Iron Sickle

The Iron Sickle

Author(s): Martin Limon

Location(s): Seoul

Genre(s): Thriller

Era(s): Late 20th Century



Early one rainy morning, the head of the 8th United States Army Claims Office in Seoul, South Korea, is brutally murdered by a Korean man in a trench coat carrying a small iron sickle hidden in his sleeve. The attack was a complete surprise, carefully planned and clinically executed. Against orders, CID agents Sergeant George Sueno and Ernie Bascom start investigating. Somehow, each person they speak to has not yet been interviewed. The 8th Army isn’t great at solving cases, but they aren’t that bad either. As the search continues, they realise not everyone wants the case solved.
