The Spy Across the Table

Aug 1, 2017

Barry Lancet brings PI Jim Brodie back for a fourth appearance in The Spy Across the Table, which he’ll be discussing and signing at Vroman’s on August 10.

Lancet has lived in Japan in for the last 25 years and in reviewing his first novel Japantown (2013) Steve Sacks writes…

Lancet’s fluency in the Japanese language, extensive knowledge of, and empathy with, the culture from which it is inseparable, and gift for creating likable (as well as despicable) characters add depth and authenticity to this captivating thriller that other non-Japanese authors rarely attain when writing about the nation.
—”Japantown” by Steve Sacks, September 4, 2013, Washington Independent Review of Books

In regard to The Spy Across the Table, Real Book Spy states…

After four books, Barry Lancet continues to elevate his series among other top franchises in the genre. Falling somewhere between Daniel Silva and Steve Berry, but with slightly more violence and explosive action sequences along the way, Lancet’s latest offering proves to be his most timely thriller so far.
