Barry Lancet is the author of the award-winning international suspense series featuring Jim Brodie. The latest entry is THE SPY ACROSS THE TABLE (Simon & Schuster) and sends Brodie careening from Washington, D.C. and San Francisco to Japan, then on to South Korea, the DMZ, and the Chinese-North Korean border in a story that could have been ripped from today’s headlines. In one of the first advance reviews, Publishers’ Weekly said that “Lancet keeps the suspense high through the exciting climax.”

The previous entry in the series, PACIFIC BURN, explores the tragic aftermath of the Fukushima quake-tsunami disaster and the real reasons behind the nuclear melt down. JAPANTOWN, the first Brodie adventure, won the Barry Award for Best First Novel,

Hi Kay,

I turn 1 day into 2, so to speak.

I work in the morning at home, then take a long break of 2 to 3 hours, in which I do many different things. I start again in the afternoon. The long break allows me to approach the second session refreshed, as if it's morning again. This time I work outside, at one of the 8 or 10 coffee shops in the area.(less)
