In the second thriller of this new series from Barry Lancet,
antiques dealer-turned-P.I. Jim Brodie matches wits with an elusive group of
killers chasing a long-lost treasure that has a dangerous history.
A long lost treasure,
a wartime massacre, and a modern-day killing
When an elderly World War II 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 the war and to Chinese Triads
operating in present-day Tokyo, insisting that he and his few surviving army
buddies are in danger.
Fresh off his involvement in solving San Francisco’s
Japantown murders, antiques dealer Jim Brodie had returned to Tokyo for some
R&R, and to hunt down a rare ink painting by the legendary Japanese Zen
master Sengai for one of his clients—not to take on another case with his late
father’s P.I. firm. But 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, kendo
warriors, and an elusive group of killers whose treachery spans centuries—and
who will stop at nothing to complete their mission. Download and start listening now!
