Synopsis: The fourth Sergeant George Sueño Investigation

Seoul, 1970s: As North Korea menaces and Vietnam burns, US 8th Army CID agent Sergeant George Sueño and his partner, Ernie Bascom, weave through back alleys and bordellos, trying to tip the scales of justice back in the right direction. This time, they’re not just pursuing criminals—they’re chasing themselves. Homicidal thieves have gotten hold of George’s badge and are using it to trick their victims for just long enough to strike—with his gun. The army wants the equipment accounted for, and the ID and weapon recovered. George and Ernie want to salvage their reputation, such as it is—and to stop the cold-blooded killings being committed in their names.
