  • The son of a high-ranking North Korean official, the creepily charismatic Kwang-il is committing brutal serial murders around the world. Drawn into this fraught crisis are three different enforcers: Jae-hyuk, a by-the-book, buttoned-up Korean federal agent; Inspector Chae Edo, a world-weary but extremely effective local cop; and a lone-wolf wildcard whose origin is at the heart of this mysterious thriller. Despite the indisputable evidence against his prime suspect, Edo is forced to release Kwang-il. Edo’s hands are further tied when he finds out that his own government is protecting the culprit. Soon, the enigmatic final third member of this law enforcement group emerges from the shadows, proposing a joint investigation to capture the serial killer by any means necessary. – Lane Kneedler
