Author Biography

GENERAL BIO (for full-length bio go here)

Barry Lancet is the author of the international mystery-thriller series featuring Jim Brodie. Japantown, the first book, won the Barry Award for "Best First Mystery Novel" and was chosen as a "Best Debut of the Year" by Suspense Magazine and mystery critic Oline Cogdill. His second book, Tokyo Kill, was a finalist for a Shamus Award for "Best P.I. Novel of the Year" and was selected as a must-read for Asian leaders by Forbes magazine. An American expat from California, Lancet has lived in Tokyo for more than twenty-five years, though he makes frequent trips to the U.S. His access to the inner circles in traditional and other areas of Japan informs his writing. The third and fourth entries in the series are Pacific Burn and The Spy Across the Table. A movie or TV series based on the books is currently under discussion.
