The Poksu Conspiracy picks up Burke Hill's story a year following the first book, Beware the Jabberwock.
The Cold War has ended, but a reliable report reveals a plot that could throw the Far East into turmoil. Burke Hill, clandestine director for a Washington PR firm that's a CIA spinoff, is tasked to find the truth about a secret agreement for Israel to help South Korea develop nuclear weapons. This follows the new Seoul government's request that all U.S. troops be withdrawn. Further complicating the situation, a bomb decimates the North Korean leadership in Pyongyang. As Hill soon discovers, a nuclear test is scheduled shortly. He finds a diligent Seoul Metropolitan Police detective investigating a series of murders he believes are targeted at civilian leaders who favor close cooperation with America. And Captain Yun Yu-sop has identified a ruthless Korean assassin who targets anyone who stands in the way, including himself and Burke Hill.
