A Corpse in the Koryo Reviews
"Starred Review. Despite the exotic setting, Hammett and Chandler would have had no problem appreciating this hard-boiled narrative." - Publishers Weekly.
"Starred Review. The writing is superb, too, well above the level usually associated with a first novel, richly layered and visually evocative." - Booklist.
"Starred Review ..... an outstanding crime novel. . . . a not-to-be-missed reading experience." - Library Journal.
"Church uses his years of intelligence work to excellent advantage here, delivering one duplicitous plot twist after another. Though often understated, the author's affection for the landscape and people of Korea is abundantly evident." - The Washington Post.
"The pseudonymous Church, himself a former intelligence officer, doesn't believe in linear plotting but is an admirable stylist." - Kirkus Reviews.
