The 140th episode of the Reading & Writing podcast is an interview with Barry Lancet, debut author of JAPANTOWN, the first in a new international thriller series from Simon & Schuster that was picked up by J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot in association with Warner Bros.
“A sophisticated international thriller . . . Having lived and worked in Japan for more than 25 years, Lancet brings an impressive breadth of knowledge to the historical aspects of the mystery and a sharp sense of immediacy to its action.”
The New York Times Book Review
Lancet moved from California to Japan more than twenty-five years ago. His former position as an editor at one of the nation’s largest publishers gave him access to the inner circles in traditional and business fields most outsiders are never granted, and an insider’s view informs his writing. He is currently finishing the second mystery/thriller featuring Jim Brodie.
