    In this "sophisticated international thriller" (The New York Times Book Review), an American antiques dealer turned reluctant private eye must use his knowledge of Japanese culture to unravel a major murder in San Francisco - before he and his daughter become targets themselves. San Francisco antiques dealer Jim Brodie receives a call one night from a friend at the SFPD: An entire family has been senselessly gunned down in the Japantown neighborhood of the bustling city.

    Lancet is about to be discovered

    I hesitated before buying this book since it is Barry Lancet's first published. This is one of the best first books I've ever read/listened to.

    After wading through the tragedy of San Francisco's Japantown murders, struggling antiques dealer Jim Brodie is back in Japan for a well-earned vacation. But checking in at the PI firm Brodie inherited from his father, he immediately acquires a new case: a Japanese World War II veteran shows up and spins a dark story connected to the war and a pair of violent home invasions committed in Tokyo only days earlier.

    Tokyo Kill is a 5 Star WOW

    Probably. There is so much going on with no lulls that if you're not paying attention you can easily miss something.
