THEIR MISSION IS MURDER. HIS IS REVENGE. A propulsive new thriller from the bestselling author of BULLET TRAIN.

Suzuki is just an ordinary man until his wife is murdered. When he discovers the criminal gang responsible he leaves behind his life as a maths teacher and joins them, looking for a chance to take his revenge. What he doesn't realise is that he's about to get drawn into a web of unusual professional assassins, each with their own agenda.

The Whale convinces his victims to take their own lives using just his words. The Cicada is a talkative and deadly knife expert. The elusive Pusher dispatches his targets in deadly traffic accidents.

Suzuki must take each of them on, in order to try to find justice and keep his innocence in a world of killers.

Reviews for Three Assassins

Three Assassins...showcases Kotaro Isaka's Tarantinoesque blend of offbeat wit and stylised violence -- James Owen * The Times * [A] mesmerising tale of how life is simultaneously cheap and precious, and the past catches up with us all. -- Laura Wilson * Guardian * Delivers an unusual journey. The eponymous killers - along with a man bent on payback for the death of his wife - are engaged in a dance of death * Financial Times * Isaka knows how to keep his readers on their toes. His characters are colourful, varied and morally despicable. * Crime Fiction Lover * Entertaining...high-speed...with lots of twists and turns...it has a Tarantino-meets-the-Coen-Brothers feel to it * The Times, on BULLET TRAIN *
