From Kotaro Isaka, the award-winning, internationally bestselling author of Bullet Train, the high-octane thriller Three Assassins, set in Tokyo’s criminal underworld, pits an ordinary man against a group of talented and very unusual assassins.

Suzuki is an ordinary man . . . until his wife is murdered. To get answers and his revenge, he abandons his law-abiding lifestyle and takes a low-level job with a front company operated by the crime gang Maiden, who are responsible for his wife’s death. Before long, Suzuki finds himself caught up in a network of quirky and highly effective assassins:

The Cicada is a knife expert.

The Pusher nudges people into oncoming traffic.

The Whale whispers bleak aphorisms to his victims until they take their own lives.  

Intense and electrifying, Three Assassins delivers a wild ride through the criminal underworld of Tokyo, populated by contract killers who are almost superhumanly good at their jobs.

“Feels like a fever dream that makes sense when you’re in it, but whose strange contours linger long after you wake up.” —New York Times
