Book Description


See all titles by Barry Eisler.

Barry Eisler has been compared to Forsyth, Ludlum, le Carre, Ian Fleming, and Graham Greene. But his latest thriller brings Eisler into a league of his own. When Japanese/American contract killer John Rain learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, he senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption.

But Midori is being watched by Rain's enemies, and his sudden appearance puts mother and child in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind. With the help of Tatsu, his friendly nemesis in the Japanese FBI, and Dox, the ex-marine sniper whose good ol' boy persona masks a killer as deadly as Rain himself, Rain races against time to bring his enemies into the open and eliminate them forever. But to finish the job, he'll need one more ally: Israeli intelligence agent Delilah, a woman who represents an altogether different kind of threat . . .

Author Biography: Barry Eisler spent three years in a covert position with the CIA's Directorate of Operations. After leaving the CIA, he lived and worked in Japan, where he earned his black belt from the Kodokan International Judo Center. The Rain books-Rain Fall, Hard Rain, Rain Storm, and Killing Rain-have won the Barry and Gumshoe awards, been translated into nearly twenty languages, and been optioned for film by Barrie Osborne, the Oscar-winning producer of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

5 of 5 Last Assassin December 19, 2010
Reviewer: P. Sutton from Inglewood, West Australia  
This book is the best of the series so far. I am an addict now but I think my best recommendation is to read them all and read them in order. This is the only way to understand the pull of the characters and the reason behind why Rain is developing as he is.
This book has it all and I am totally ingrossed in the writing style now and would have no hesitation in recommending this book to readers who enjoy a good thriller. It is different to most other books and this is what makes it so enjoyable.
My advice is read them all and in order and sit back for an enjoyable ride into a great thriller series.
