You don’t have to be a fan of mysteries and thrillers to enjoy Martin Limón’s new release, The Joy Brigade. Limón is first and foremost a storyteller; that his stories happen to include a few dead bodies and secret agents is incidental. Joy Brigade is Limón’s ninth installment in his series featuring Sergeant George Sueño, a U.S. army soldier stationed in Korea. It’s the early 1970s, and Sueño has been tasked with retrieving a map of the secret tunnels that snake under the DMZ. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the previous entries in this series; each story is complete on its own. 4:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
