In this exciting international thriller featuring
Japanese antiques art dealer and PI Jim Brodie, a double-
murder at the Kennedy Center forces Brodie into a
dangerous game of espionage—putting him in the crosshairs
of the Chinese, North Korean, and American governments.
Jim Brodie is an antiques dealer, Japan expert, and
second-generation private investigator. When two theater
friends are murdered backstage at a Kennedy Center
performance in Washington, DC, he’s devastated—and
determined to hunt down the killer. He’s not the only
After the attack, Brodie is summoned to the White House.
The First Lady was the college roommate of one of the
victims, and she enlists Brodie—off the books—to use his
Japanese connections to track down the assassin. Homeland
Security head Tom Swelley is furious that the White House
is meddling and wants Brodie off the case. Why? For the
same reason a master Chinese spy known only as Zhou, one
of the most dangerous men alive, appears on the scene:
Those murders were no random act of violence.
Brodie flies to Tokyo to attend the second of two
funerals, when his friend’s daughter Anna is kidnapped
during the ceremony. It is then Brodie realizes that the
murders were simply bait to draw her out of hiding. Anna,
it seems, is the key architect of a top-secret NSA
program that gathers the personal secrets of America’s
most influential leaders. Secrets so damaging that North
Korea and China will stop at nothing to get them.
Publishers Weekly said, “Readers will want to see more of
the talented Jim Brodie,” and The Spy Across the Table is
an edge-of-your-seat thriller in Barry Lancet’s wildly
popular and highly acclaimed series.
