- "Bureau 39 is an edge-of-your-seat thriller in the Tom Clancy mold that delves into the hitherto unexplored underworld of the pariah state that is North Korea." -- Ron McMillan, Bangkok Belle
- "A fast-paced thriller that takes us from Hong Kong to Bangkok to Seoul and doesn't let up until its explosive denouement near the border with North Korea." -- Michael Breen, The New Koreans: The Story of a Nation.
From the Back Cover
Not since the end of the Korean War in 1953 has there been a greater dread of hostilities flaring up on the Korean peninsula, where the border between North and South is the world's most heavily militarized frontier. Bureau 39 is a chilling tale set in the sole remaining flashpoint of the Cold War of old.
