Previously published as Rain FallName: John Rain.Vocation: Assassin.Specialty: Natural Causes.Base of operations: Tokyo.Availability: Worldwide.Half American, half Japanese, expert in both worlds but at home in neither, John Rain is the best killer money can buy. You tell him who. You tell him where. He doesn't care about why...Until he gets involved with Midori Kawamura, a beautiful jazz pianist--and the daughter of his latest kill."Eisler provides a cracklingly good yarn, well written, deftly plotted, and surprisingly appealing... Thomas Perry and Lawrence Block need not retire their hit men quite yet, but Eisler is clearly a challenger."--Boston GlobeIncludes a note from the author introducing the new edition. This is book #1 in the John Rain assassin series, though each entry is written as a standalone and you can read them in any order you like.

4.5 Completely blown away
This book blew me away.I’m not fond of assassins as main characters so normally I wouldn’t have picked up this book.
