I am on a hot streak lately of finding new to me suspense and thriller authors My newest find is Barry Lancet His hero lives part time in Japan and part time in the US In Japan he co owns and runs his late father's security company while in the US he owns and runs a high endart and antiue store He's still learning about security work and relies heavily on his employees who are also partnersTokyo Kill is set entirely in Japan a country and culture I know little about it It is a fascinating place judging by this book and the author's love and respect for it come through clearly He takes what is likely a touchy subject World War II and the part that both Japan and China played in it and makes it the center of the story Add in the tales of an emperor's lost treasure love romance treachery and family ties and Lancet gives us a complex layered complicated story that never lets upLancet keeps the pace rolling with neither the reader nor the hero Jim having much time for a breather Despite the fast pace Lance doesn't lose site of his characters as people The story may be action driven but there are also tender moments with Jim's daughter a potential girl friend and even his employees He has a strong sense of justice loyalty and compassion Those drive much of his actions and decisions during the story and it's a hard shock for him when he discovers that those beliefs and emotions have been used against him There are so many twists and turns and layers that sometimes I had trouble keeping up but it was worth the effort I loved that Lancet took some standard cliches and tropes such asTriads and ninjas and made them fresh He also isn't afraid to kill people off and one death in particular saddened me despite the fact that we really didn't see all that much of him while he was aliveTake a chance on Lancet you won't regret it Tokyo Kills is compelling original story telling with remarkable characters that will keep you reading until the end

SUMMARY í INSOLPRO.CO.UK ↠ Barry Lancet

In the second thriller of this new series from “a fresh voice in crime fiction” Kirkus Reviews antiues dealer turned PI Jim Brodie matches wits with an elusive group of killers chasing a long lost treasure that has a dangerous history 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. A mesmerizing and meticulously constructed tale that whisks the reader away to some of the most shadowy and fascinating corners of Tokyo—and then down the rabbit hole Masterfully crafted Even better than Japantown Barry Lancet does honor to the Japanese tradition of single minded devotion to one’s artIn Tokyo Kill we again meet protagonist Jim Brodie expert in Japanese art and antiuities and heir to his father’s Tokyo based private detective agency I find Brodie to be a very likeable and capable protagonist not only due to his impressive knowledge skill and intuition but also owing to his admirable moral compass Brodie is a man who holds himself accountable for his own decisions for better or for worse He exhibits selfless devotion to his family his staff his clients and his colleagues in the world of Japanese artifacts—devotion that often lands him in dire circumstances face to face with danger with death only a breath away Tokyo Kill presents the reader with layer upon layer of mystery and intrigue The novel plunges Brodie into a vast collective of overlapping networks reflective of Tokyo itself Guilt ridden World War II veterans and their offspring Chinese Triads spies and expatriates Practitioners of traditional Japanese arts And seemingly ordinary people who prove to be much than they first appear to be on the surface Barry Lancet skillfully pits Jim Brodie against an array of ambitious cruel and relentless foes The connections are often surprising but—much to the reader’s delight—they’re always plausibleI was pleased that Lancet gave the hero a love interest in this second Jim Brodie novel It will be interesting to see where this promising cross cultural relationship goes in future installments of Brodie’s storyWhile Tokyo Kill takes on serious themes some of which entail sensitive issues regarding Japan's national psyche it comes off as neither discouragingly heavy nor as flippantly shallow These thoughtful themes are woven into the fiber of the story in such a way that they deepen and enrich both plot and characterization without slowing the pace a bit Conseuently Tokyo Kill comes off as uality enjoyable entertainment—entertainment with an agreeable balance of substance and fancy Tokyo Kill’s style is at times gutsy—a shade away from gritty Graphic enough without giving in to sensationalist gore Dialogue is very tastefully done My only real criticism of Tokyo Kill is that I am not a big fan of scenes in which the antagonist gives a full solilouy explaining what he did and why he did it Overall I don’t consider the one such scene in Tokyo Kill to have ruined the seuence much less the entire book I would simply have preferred to find out some of that information through the hero or one of his colleaguesI was glad to have a day off when Tokyo Kill came out I didn’t want to put the book down and I finished it the day after I got it An even telling indicator of its effect on me is that I did not want the story to end I wanted to remain in Jim Brodie’s world a while longer To me that’s a mark of a truly good readKudos again to Barry Lancet

Tokyo KillTo the war and to Chinese Triads operating in present day Tokyo insisting that he and his few surviving army buddies are in dangerFresh off his involvement in solving San Francisco’s Japantown murders antiues dealer Jim Brodie had returned to Tokyo for some RR 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’. 55 I love this series Hardcore thriller mystery — BOOK 2 The Jim Brodie series — each book can be read as a standalone but the characters and subplots carry over and just get better in every book This book was even fast paced than book one Japantown I loved the history of both the Japanese and Chinese recollections of war Barry Lancet is a master storyteller that manages to tell convincing break neck speed thrillers without the use of blue language or sex I’d say this book has the same pace and depth as a Dan Brown novel and that is GOODI also appreciate the authors notes sharing with the reader what parts of the “history” and locations are fact or fiction And also the heartfelt dedication to the forgotten WWII Japanese veterans It seems every war has this group of soldiers and it’s a shame they do not have an outlet to share their stories I wish I could meet Mr Lancet just to say thank youFor sure and forever would rec this series Bring on book threeBook 1 JapantownBook 2 Tokyo KillBook 3 Pacific BurnBook 4 The Spy Across the Table
