It's a Great book. I'm from China. In order to fully understand the story, I translated it into Chinese. I have never been to Korea, But the book helped me visualise the life there. Good wishes to the author in the New Year!

Murder in the Morning Calm is highly recommended! A very good murder mystery with a surprising twist. Well written, this book gives a very good description of a place I've never been to but could close my eyes and imagine just from reading about it. Thumbs up Mr. Warner! :) Best wishes for continued success to you.

I read "Murder in the Morning Calm" from cover to cover. Now WHEN is book #2 coming out? I couldn't put this one down and I want to know what Jim Stewart is working on now!!! It held my interest, I took it with me everywhere I went, and I couldn't stop thinking about it when I wasn't reading it. Another book did that for me one time..."Gone With The Wind." You're an awesome author. Keep up the great work and bring 'em on!!! Anxious for #2!

I agree with one of the other commentors who said they are not usually in to murder mysteries, but this book definitely grabs and keeps your interest from the first sentence. Bob gave me a copy of this book for Christmas (I work with him) and I tried to remain objective while reading it but was pleased to find that I didn't have to lie to him and tell him how great it was, because it actually was. Not only is Bob Warner a great person, he's a great writer! Keep it up, Bob, and hurry up and get the sequel out!

I have read this book over and over and have definitely passed it on to friends and family. I've been stationed in Korea in the 2d Inf Div and JSA. I can relate to a lot of the happenings in the book as well as the characters. The book not only has a realistic view, but the story line has a "nitty gritty" down to earth story-telling effect. Great job and I'm looking forward to the next venture.

Did a great job. There were a couple of times when I wondered why you were making the book larger by adding a scene and then, .... you got me.. I later found out why.. Good job. It was fun reading and I have never been assigned to Taegu. I give you five stars. Thanks for sharing the book.

After reading the 1st chapter, I could not put it down until I finished the entire book. Usually it takes me days to finish a book and I usually forget part of it by the end. Your book and the writing style kept me interested in it so much that I couldn't put it down. If you ever write another book I would most definitely be looking forward to reading it.

'Murder in the Morning Calm' is a great book!!!! I can hardly wait for a sequel!! I normally don't care too much for murder mysteries, but your's is the exception to the rule. I love it!! Great job!! I was sure that Miss Lee was the killer right up until they found Compo's finger prints on the gun. Then I bought into Compo being the killer, right up until you revealed my first inclination was right!! Fantastic!!! I normally don't care for murder mysteries because I usually have a good idea of 'who done it' long before the author reveals the true identity of the killer, but your book got me!! That doesn't happen often and when it does it is a mark of a great author!! Keep up the great work!

Finished it while back (actually reading it again). Good stuff!! Amazing how many of the things you mention in there I know about (and have been to). Great work.

I read your book and I liked it a lot. The CID agents ate a lot, but so does everyone. I didn't know who killed the ration control clerk until the very end, that is a good thing. Being in Korea, I could relate to a lot of what was in the book. I look forward to reading your next book.

I started reading your book immediately you gave it to me and just finished it, starting this e-mail after. Very interesting and intriguing. I just want to know if it really true that Miss Lee was sentenced to 20 years. She must be still in prison then. I feel sorry for her. She got a raw deal and ended up in jail! Life is so unfair. Falling in love with a guy who were real nice at hiding who he really was and got that! Same with Mrs. Compo. I actually learned a lot about the Army, and that was even new to me that if you commit adultery you would be charged with it and lose your career. I thought that only existed in Korea. We once campaigned that it should be demolished, saying it is old. And I, myself, was for it.(Still am, though) It looks like you have stricter rules and regulation with the Army than I imagined. It was really great, enjoyed it.

I am not a literary critic, nor am I an avid book reader. I found this book a pleasure to read. It was easy reading for me. I really liked the way he explained all the Korean customs and idiosyncrasies along the way. It made the story much easier to follow. I also liked the way he had several sub plots intertwined into the main plot. This helped keep my interest in the book. I must admit I did not expect the ending to come out like it did, this is also a good thing in my opinion.

It kept getting better page by page. Brought back memories of Taegu Bongdukdong. The clubs and our notorious thunder runs. Was really a fast moving book I couldn't put it down until I finished it. As it ended I wondered where the two special agents would end up next -- CONUS or stay in the ROK and change assignments to another area. I truly found no flaws in you telling of the plot of the book. Great job. Get started on the next book.

Great book, read the whole thing the first two days I had it. I have been to many of the places mentioned in the book. Lived at Camp Humphreys from 1972-76 and then 1978-79. Was in Taegu summer of 1973 and then from 1993-98. There was an actual case of a staff sergeant in ration control helping folks avoid ration control limits. He was not killed but was court-martialed and managed to get out of the service with a general discharge. A bunch of much higher-ups were involved and that saved him. I am currently married to a 'Jina'.

It's really marvelous!! the plots are complex, but they are quite clear in your hand. The romantic daily life and the arcane investigation combine perfectly. It's not like fiction, but your real life. I sometimes imagine your happy life in Korea and hope I can own that, even in a novel. :-) Eager to know whether you'll have a second book, and a third, and hope to read them all.

finished up last night. Top reasons for knowing the book is a winner: 1) Can't and don't want to put it down 2) Constantly thinking about it when you aren't reading it 3) Get so absorbed in reading that you forget everything else going on 4) Actually feel like you are a part of the story (just like being there) 5) Hate when the story ends 6) Anxiously await the next book
