Synopsis: “Best of Debut of the Year” —Suspense Magazine
WINNER of the Barry Award for Best Debut Novel
Optioned for TV by J.J. Abrams & Warner Bros.

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. As an American born and raised in Japan and part-owner of his father’s Tokyo private investigation firm, Brodie has advised the local police in the past, but the near-perfect murders in Japantown are like nothing he’s ever encountered.

With his array of Asian contacts and fluency in Japanese, Brodie follows leads gathered from a shadow powerbroker, a renegade Japanese detective, and the elusive tycoon at the center of the Japantown murders along a trail that takes him from the crime scene in California to terrorized citizens and informants in Japan. Step by step, he unravels a web of intrigue stretching back centuries and unearths a deadly secret that threatens not only his life but also the lives of his entire circle of family and friends. “Readers will want to see more of the talented Jim Brodie, with his expertise in Japanese culture, history, and martial arts” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

From the Back Cover: "This is a terrific debut from a talented and very promising writer.  Nimbly written and atmospheric. Lancet ... depicts a rich mixture of art and violence, the past and the present, east and west."        --T. Jefferson Parker, NYT Bestselling Author of The Famous and the Dead and The Jaguar   "An elegantly brutal thriller, Japantown is reminiscent of classic Daniel Silva and Barry Eisler.  Lancet's unique background bleeds authenticity into the story. Japantown is a bold and exciting debut. Don't miss it."           --J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author    "From gritty San Francisco to exotic Tokyo, Japantown is a whip-smart, razor-fast ride, and entertaining from cover to cover."           --Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of The Informationist   "Get ready for an action-packed, tension-filled escape with Barry Lancet's thriller worthy of Elmore Leonard. The trail of crime races from Tokyo to New York and returns inevitably to Japantown, six square blocks in San Francisco, where antiques dealer and private eye Jim Brodie walks a dangerous line in the shadow world of clashing cultures."            --Ronald Kessler, NYT bestselling author of In the President's Secret Service and The Secrets of the FBI   "Japantown is an expertly written story with vivid, complex characters. The mystery holds surprises until the very end."           --Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author
