Tokyo Kill

From the author of Japantown

"A stellar novel of action, adventure, and intrigue. Jim Brodie is a true 21st century hero, part of the new, gritty mythos, warts and all, but capable of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. 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

A LONG-LOST TREASURE.
A WARTIME MASSACRE.
A MODERN-DAY KILLING.

When an elderly World War Two 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 World War II and to Chinese Triads operating in present-day Tokyo, insisting that he and his few surviving army buddies are in danger.

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, Japanese kendo warriors, and an elusive group of killers whose treachery spans centuries—and who will stop at nothing to complete their mission.
