Description

“Best P.I. Novel” —Shamus Award FINALIST

In the second thriller of this new series from “a fresh voice in crime fiction” (Kirkus Reviews), antiques dealer-turned-P.I. Jim Brodie matches wits with an elusive group of killers chasing a long-lost treasure that has a dangerous history.

“A stellar novel of action, adventure, and intrigue. Jim Brodie is a true twenty-first century hero…On page after page of Tokyo Kill, skeletons bang on every closet door longing to be set free—and Barry Lancet delivers.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lincoln Myth

“Lancet’s familiarity with Japanese history and culture, combined with his storytelling skills, make this a first-rate mystery…a clear indicator that the author considers Jim Brodie a series-worthy character. He’d be right, too.”
Booklist

“Boasting surefire characters including the taciturn, thick-chested chief detective Noda and notorious crime figure called TNT who owes Brodie favors…[Lancet’s] series remains highly distinctive.”
—Kirkus Reviews

When an elderly World War II veteran shows up unannounced at Brodie Security begging for protection, the staff thinks he’s just a paranoid old man. He offers up a story connected to the war and to Chinese Triads operating in present-day Tokyo, insisting that he and his few surviving army buddies are in danger.

Fresh off his involvement in solving San Francisco’s Japantown murders, antiques dealer Jim Brodie had returned to Tokyo for some R&R, and to hunt down a rare ink painting by the legendary Japanese Zen master Sengai for one of his clients—not to take on another case with his late father’s P.I. firm. But out of respect for the old soldier, Brodie agrees to provide a security detail, thinking it’ll be an easy job and end when the man comes to his senses.

Instead, an unexpected, brutal murder rocks Brodie and his crew, sending them deep into the realm of the Triads, Chinese spies, kendo warriors, and an elusive group of killers whose treachery spans centuries—and who will stop at nothing to complete their mission.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 07, 2014 – Lancet's second novel featuring Tokyo-based PI Jim Brodie falls short of the high standard set by his debut, 2013's Japantown. Brodie agrees to take the case of Akira Miura, a 93-year-old former soldier, who freely admits he committed war crimes as a young man on duty in China during Japan's occupation in the years before WWII. In recent weeks, Miura claims, several of his surviving fellow soldiers have been murdered in a series of home invasions, and he wants Brodie to investigate as well as provide protection. Miura suspects a vigilante Chinese triad is behind the killings, but Brody quickly figures out something else is at stake. As the case progresses, Brodie encounters a series of sneering, interchangeable bad guys in a plot that consists of scene after confrontational scene involving knife fights, poisonings, and martial arts showdowns with little supporting structure in between. Repetitive, aimless dialogue doesn't help.
