Genres: action, drama
Themes: Painting, Revenge
Plot Summary: Benkei is a Japanese expatriate living in New York who divides his time between producing masterful forgeries of famous paintings and acting as a “dealer in revenge” – a man who is paid to exact vengeance on behalf of his clients. Each of the seven chapters is a largely self-contained tale in which Benkei redresses old wrongs in a calm, implacable, sometimes elaborate and inevitably violent fashion. All but one of the stories takes place in 1990s New York (the exception is a mafia story set in Sicily).
