In Hidden Moon, Inspector O returns from a mission abroad to find his new police commander waiting at his office door. There has been a bank robbery---the first ever in Pyongyang---and the commander demands action, and quickly. But is this urgency for real? Somewhere, someone in the North Korean leadership doesnt want Inspector O to complete his investigation. And why not? What if the robbery leads to the highest levels of the regime? What if power, not a need for cash, is the real reason behind the heist at the Gold Star Bank?
"Starred Review. Church masterfully evokes the challenges of enforcing the law in an authoritarian society and weds the intriguing atmosphere to a fast-moving and engaging plot." - PW.
"While the first novel invited comparisons...this second in the series makes it clear no comparisons are necessary: this series stands on its own." - Booklist.
"Church is the pseudonym of a former Western intelligence officer who has traveled through North Korea. His tale twists and turns and leaves the reader gasping for more. Highly recommended." - Library Journal.
"O's second outing is for readers who enjoy the journey more than the destination-especially those who appreciate Church's stylish prose and incisive portrait of modern North Korea." - Kirkus Reviews.
