Now, if they would just print English books in a size that's easy to carry in one hand on trains. (yeah, I know, there're always ebooks, but I like paper too) I saw his book in paperback at the store today but in the popular (why?) larger format. British editions are often in the smaller format (up to a certain page count, of course) but I haven't seen anything on sale in the smaller size yet.

Lancet imbues “Tokyo Kill” with a vivid sense of Japan, from sections of Tokyo that only a native would know about to meticulous research into the country’s history and legends.


Barry Lancet’s exciting second novel about antiques dealer Jim Brodie, who inherited his father’s Tokyo-based private investigation and personal protection firm.

Yeah, Tokyo is just filled with those.
