RARA-AVIS: Abella/Limon/etc

Picking up on a few comments:

"One of Martin Limon's army CID cops (forget his name) is Chicano, from East L.A. "

Limon's cop is George Sueno (the last name is Spanish for dream). So far his books include Jade Lady Burning, Buddha's Money and Slicky Boys. I agree that the military police/Korean setting encourages hard-boiled action and a good dose of noir attitude.

"<< Did Abella write any others? >> I think he's got a new one out now. Sorry I can't recollect the title."

Abella has at least three books that feature Cuban-American lawyer Charlie Morrell: "The Killing of the Saints", "Dead of Night" and "Final Acts." I haven't read these but I understand they are bloody, include cult killings, corrupt politicians and Morrell's sentiment for Cuba.
