"Barry Lancet’s The Spy Across the Table is the perfect combination of mystery novel and espionage thriller wrapped into one. A skillfully written tale with gritty action sequences and a crafty plot that has hero Jim Brodie racing to unravel a conspiracy with geopolitical consequences from Washington to the Pacific Rim, Lancet’s latest offering is sure to thrill readers from the first page to the last."—Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gunmetal Gray
“As usual in a Lancet novel, the action scenes are first-rate—and violent—and the knowledge the author imparts about Asian politics and culture is deep. A solid, consistently smart thriller.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Lancet’s The Spy Across The Table is a masterful novel—a thriller ripe with intrigue, action, and heart."—Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break
“Lancet uses his insider’s knowledge of Japanese culture to great advantage, giving the book a natural, realistic flavor. Brodie is, as always, a strong lead, and the book has some very nice twists. A strong entry in a consistently reliable series."—Booklist
“Lancet keeps the suspense high through the exciting climax…in this faced-paced fourth thriller featuring Japanese antiquities expert Jim Brodie.”—Publishers Weekly
“If you like your thrillers fusing espionage with murder mysteries, set in locations vividly described, and moving at a fast, dense clip with more twists and turns than many another author’s entire canon might provide, The Spy Across the Table should be very diverting summer reading."—Bookpleasures
“Along with lots of good old-fashioned mayhem, Lancet does a fine job on the complexities of electronic espionage — hacking, eavesdropping, GPS tracking, eye-in-the-sky surveillance, biometrics and the like. Readers who can’t keep up with the tech lingo and almost nonstop action might find the whole thing a bit overwhelming. But those who thrive on complex, tightly written thrillers are more likely to call it a tour-de-force.”—The Japan Times
“The hottest read of the summer season, if not the whole year…. The threats, suspense, double crosses and heart-stopping thrills never end in this chilling and realistic masterpiece that could be tomorrow’s international news. If you’re a fan of Flynn, Meltzer, or Dan Brown, you’ll be all-in with enthusiasm for Barry Lancet and his good guy PI, Jim Brodie. He’s tough, unusual, honest and absolutely awesome!”—Mysterious Book Report (John Dwaine McKenna)
“Barry Lancet is one of the few authors who can entertain and teach you something at the same time, hooking readers deeper and deeper as the story unfolds. That, combined with the fact that Brodie confronts threats that are relevent in today’s world, makes The Spy Across the Table a whole lot of fun to read!”—The Real Book Spy (Ryan Steck)
“Once again, Barry Lancet delivers a superb story that is worthy of praise. The plot is unpredictable and keeps the reader in suspense until the very last page…. An extremely captivating spy thriller.”—Seattle Book Review

Such is the case with Barry Lancet and his latest Jim Brodie thriller, The Spy Across the Table. I so do enjoy the way the Lancet writes and engages his reader with his storytelling techniques. I’m especially impressed with the various characters Lancet weaves in and out his novels that move along the story and add a richness and depth to the story. He is one of the best writers out there these days doing this sort of thing.
Whether you have been following Jim Brodie through all the books in this series or if this is your first foray into Brodie’s world of art and espionage, you won’t be disappointed with Lancet’s latest literary offering. From the Kennedy Center to the DMZ on the Korean peninsula, the action is non-stop and heart-pounding in this geopolitical thriller.
Jeffrey Miller, Bureau 39
What is, perhaps, most praiseworthy is his ability to do this while maintaining the considerable momentum of the story.
The settings in this book are far flung, from the centers of power in American government, to the intriguing dark alleys of Asia, and the horrid treatment found in a Chinese prison. But even as he delivers a dangerous hail of bullets, Lancet gives us a feast of Japanese cuisine to ponder as Jim Brodie angles to avert another international crisis.
I am grateful for every page I turned and am looking forward to book six.
