Hard Rain (John Rain Thrillers)by Barry Eisler
Synopses & Reviews
In his critically acclaimed Rain Fall, Barry Eisler introduced half-Japanese, half-American freelance hitman John Rain, a dashing and dangerous hero...as likable as he is lethal. Now Eisler's back. So is Rain, the master of death by natural causes whose new target threatens the fragile political balance of an entire country.
"[A] captivating follow-up....Eisler acknowledges the help of experts in many areas, but it's his own impressive literary skills that make his John Rain such a fascinating, touching and wholly believable character." Publishers Weekly
"Hard-boiled down to the ice-cold core of his survival-oriented soul, [Rain is] not much more than a machine, but expertly engineered at that, and fascinating to watch in action....Slick, moody stuff, with a plot that slips out of memory even as the pages turn." Kirkus Reviews
"While Eisler offers a convincing noir landscape and action scenes that could make John Woo drool, the too-complex plot is peopled by characters both sharp-tongued and hollow. Plus, Rain is given to hokey clenched-jaw quips." Entertainment Weekly
