Critics praised Barry Eisler's first two novels, "Rain Fall" and
"Hard Rain," calling Japanese-American John Rain, the cynical,
romantic, conscientious assassin, "one of the most memorable
characters in recent thrillers" ("San Jose Mercury News") and "a
remarkable creation, a multifaceted killer with the soul of a poet"
In "Rain Storm," Rain has fled to Brazil to escape the killing
business and the enemies who have been encircling him. But his
knack for making death seem to have been of "natural causes" and
his ability to operate unnoticed in Asia continue to create
unwelcome demand for his services. His old employer, the CIA,
persuades him to take on a high-risk assignment: a ruthless arms
dealer supplying criminal groups throughout Southeast Asia.
The upside? Financial, of course, along with the continued chimera
of moral redemption. But first, Rain must survive the downside: a
second assassin homing in on the target; the target's consort-an
alluring woman named Delilah with an agenda of her own; and the
possibility that the entire mission is nothing but an elaborate
setup. From the gorgeous beaches of Rio to the glitzy casinos of
Macao to the gritty back streets of Hong Kong and Kowloon, Rain
becomes a reluctant player in an international game far deadlier
and more insidious than he has ever encountered before.
