To prevent a war in Asia--one that could quickly spread to the rest of the world--Paul Janson and Jessica Kincaid must learn the truth behind a young woman's murder.
U.S. Senator James Wyckoff hires former government agents Janson and Kincaid to locate his teenage son. Gregory's girlfriend Lynell has been found strangled in a Seoul hotel, and Gregory has fled the city to avoid being arrested for the crime. But Senator Wyckoff insists that his son is innocent, suggesting that Lynell, who was a translator, may have been murdered because of something she overheard at a recent international conference.

I am honestly not sure what happened to this story. First off the main character is supposed to be called "the machine" as in he doesn't do any mission without carefully planning it out and having a plan "B", plan "C", etc. Whereas in this story he races off to North Korea without any preplanning, then he races off to China, then he races off to North Korea again - all without a plan even considered.
Lastly the second trip to conclude the book (no spoiler) - was complete garbage. It didn't make sense, it wasn't logical, it didn't even seem very hard. Come on! we are talking about directly challenging some of the most crazy people in the world....any you simply tricked them with technology that previously the author had said didn't work there.
Not worth reading.

Yes, like D. Rodmen visiting North Korea. Way out there! I renewed the book twice because I hate to leave a story unfinished. But nothing kept me turning the pages in anticipation.

The first two in the series written by a different writer were more interesting to read. The storyline in this one is way out there giving a new meaning to Fiction.
