About the Author

Kotaro Isaka is a bestselling and award-winning writer whose books have sold millions of copies around the world. He has won the Shincho Mystery Club Award, Mystery Writers of Japan Award, Japan Booksellers' Award, and the Yamamoto Shugoro Prize. His novel Bullet Train was made into a major film from Sony starring Brad Pitt.


"[An] engrossing thriller . . . Isaka makes what could be an over-the-top narrative work through his depiction of an everyman protagonist in way over his head. Fans of Bullet Train won't be disappointed."
--Publishers Weekly
"A delicate balancing act between this heady nihilism and his direct, propulsive plotting... Three Assassins feels like a fever dream that makes sense when you're in it, but whose strange contours linger long after you wake up."
--The New York Times Book Review, Editors Choice Pick
"The world created here is highly imaginative and chaotic, with very engaging characters. This prequel to Bullet Train is a super fun and wild ride."
"Isaka cuts from scene to scene, injecting plentiful amounts of humor, pathos, and surprisingly deep musings on pop culture into his plot as it pinballs along . . .a wildly entertaining criminal romp with a surprisingly poignant ending. Recommended."
--Criminal Element
"Tense and action-packed, Kotaro Isaka's Three Assassins offers an exploration of just how dangerous and uncertain the quest for vengeance can be."
--Portland Book Review
"Very well done . . . The plot is well-designed, the connections neatly made - and the intricacy is pleasing . . . the storyline in Three Assassins makes for a very enjoyable and quite satisfying read."
