Star of the North

by D B John

Great believable characters and a rapidly developing plot which involves intrigue and duplicity at the highest levels of both North Korean and US governments. Set mainly in North Korea where the regime is described in all its horrors. Don't be put off by the 'explosive thriller' subtitle if that's not your thing - it's much, much more than that. Great read!
