      This is a beautifully translated addition to the emergent genre of Korean Noir, it is offbeat, full of wit, irony and black humour, gritty and brutal but never less than engaging and gripping, set in Seoul In this story of a quagmire of plotters, we have our anti hero an assassin, Reseng, inescapably destined to become an exceptional hitman after being raised by Old Raccoon You cannot help but be drawn into his life and character despite the brutality of his occupation Contract killings are m Th [...]
