Suzuki just began working for a criminal enterprise. He quit his middle school mathematics teaching job to try and enact revenge for his wife’s death. The son of the enterprise’s owner killed Suzuki’s wife in a hit-and-run accident. However, the son is soon murdered by a private assassin, The Pusher, who pushes the son in front of busy traffic. Suzuki is tasked by his new boss to find The Pusher. The Pusher isn’t the only psychopath killer within Three Assassins. The Whale uses persuasion to convince his victims to kill themselves. The Cicada kills his victims with a knife. It’s an all-out melee!
Three Assassins is a combination of every recent Liam Nielson movie with an all-male psychotic Charlie’s Angels—but funny! It may be hard to imagine, and that is why this book is such an enjoyably different experience compared to most thrillers. I loved it and I think most thriller fans will too! It is by the author of Bullet Train so expect to see a movie later too. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to The Overlook Press and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
