A CORPSE IN THE KORYO (2006) by James Church

First in the series about "Inspector O" - takes place in current day Pyongyang, capital of Korea. They have a police force that solves crimes, murders, etc., just as we have even tho they are communists, but they have a lot more "red" tape. Lots of different bureaucracies make investigating dangerous, not to mention, it makes confusing reading. (Please bring back Spellcheck)

Interesting, but I had to read up on Korean history in Wikipedia a bit to understand what's going on. I'm enjoying it.

James Church is a pseudonym of a former US intelligence agent.

There are quite a few to go. The reviews in Amazon said that this one wasn't one of his best, but a good way to get to know the characters...they get better..
