Buy with confidence, excellent customer service!. The Last Assassin John Rain. Barry Eisler. Publisher: Penguin , It made me bust out in a smile. Finally, other than the words, the great writing, the exciting story and the compelling characters I got to remember the blurb I read on Schrodinger's Cat. If you are not familiar with the experiement, it's worth knowing about.

At the beginning of installment 5, Rain learns that his son is living with his mother Midori in New York City, oblivious to the fact that Rain's yakuza enemies from Japan have her under constant surveillance.

Rain, himself, has fallen in love or as close to love as an emotionally detached trained killer can be with a fellow assassin, the beautiful Israeli, Delilah.

Torn between escaping his life of murder, and establishing a relationship with his son, Rain sets out to destroy the yakuza boss and regain his freedom. To do so, Rain must return to Japan to his dying mentor, and solicit the help of the irreverant and sometims obnoxious, but always loyal sniper, Dox. As with all the books in the Rain series, this one is filled with fight scenes, brutal murders, and tricky surveillance gadgets. But more so than the others, Rain really develops in this one as a human being - determined to remain dispassionate, but tormented by his conscience.

The quote on the back of this one got it right - it truly is "the best one yet! I stumbled across Barry Eisler and have read the entire 8-book series. And was very pleased. As such, this is the same review for all 8 books. The author reads his own work, and after listening to Tom Wood's series with Rob Shapiro as the wonderful narrator, this took me a while to adapt to the reading style. But don't let that dissuade you. Barry Eisler does a really really fine job of narrating, and you get to hear the different personalities, and understand who is who pretty quickly.

Barry Eisler has a nice knack of leading the reader on, enticing them to continue the story, and understand the predicaments the protagonist John Rain finds himself in. In addition, the growth of the character is wonderful. Kudos to Barry Eisler, and his real-life background that leads him to be able to write this well check out his website as well!

As I mentioned above, I have read all 8 books. Once I got through book 1, I could not put down the entire series. I liked this series so much, I'd love to meet the author, and can't wait to read more of his works as well.

I just stumbled onto this book in my local library and given the pressures on my time the last month, almost returned it unread. But I took to reading it over the last weekend, and boy, it turned out to be a surprisingly good read. Tight in its plotting, just about the right length, and populated with characters that can, perhaps, grow on you, this book was a happy experience.

Indeed the only thing is that there is a bit too much of killing - some avoidable and some not - that sort of detracts from the overall effect. John Rain is a conflicted master of the black arts trying to get away from his mercenary past but tied down by too many strands that keep pulling him back in.

In this story too, enemies from his past chase him. Using some ingenuity, some incredible contacts who give him all the firepower he needs, and a bit of luck, Rain comes out intact and successful.

But he is faced with the bigger question of is this what he wants in life? A question that the author may resolve in his own way. In any event, I will read the earlier books and look forward to finding out how the story pans out.

But first there's the little matter of the Japanese gangster Yamaoto and Yamaoto's Chinese triad allies, who are watching over Rain's son in New York City, not to mention Delilah, the beautiful Mossad agent who shares Rain's occupation and his bed.

Seizing the initiative, Rain enlists the aid of his super-sniper friend, Dox, in a campaign to remove Yamaoto. Rain and allies clash with their many powerful foes in combat scenes full of lovingly detailed descriptions of knives, guns and other martial paraphernalia. Amid the threats to life, limb and loved ones, Rain finds time to enjoy good food, better whiskey and even better sex. While most of the action takes place in Japan, Eisler handles all the story's locales, including Manhattan and Barcelona, with considerable aplomb. Jan 11, Bob rated it it was amazing.

Yet another exceptional chapter the life of John Rain. The end twist of the previous book is the prominent plot device in this book. Rain is conflicted between the life he leads and the life he wishes to lead. Agian, Eisler has created real conflict and humanity in a character that most people would consider a monster - a for hire assassin.

The book continues to show Rain's distrust of the world, but it is evident that the events of previous novels have changed him in ways that he didn't even th Yet another exceptional chapter the life of John Rain.

  • The book continues to show Rain's distrust of the world, but it is evident that the events of previous novels have changed him in ways that he didn't even think were possible. There are a couple of "over-the-top" momemts, but for the most part the book is extremely "real". The book was paced just as well as the prior entries and the ending was extremely emotional. Excellent read, but I would recommend at least starting at least one if not two books prior if you haven't read any of the Rain novels.

    Eisler has a new fan. I am looking for someone new. More times than not, I am disappointed. Not this time. I did think it was a bit slow-moving early on but perhaps that was because I was unfamiliar with John Rain, Dax and the backstory. However, this book has everything I like: Good crisp writing, action, Mr.

    However, this book has everything I like: Good crisp writing, action, LOTS of twists and turns, especially the last 50 pages with likeable characters I identified with. It definitely will NOT be my last. Oct 02, Max rated it really liked it Shelves: audiobooks , i-own , thriller , assassin.

    Very nice, professional narration by the author himself. I always like listening to books narrated by their authors and Barry Eisler didn't disappoint. The narration was so good it's as if the book was read by a professional actor. I guess, working as a CIA operative in the past came in handy here. I mean to be a good intelligence operative you have to be a decent actor. Anyway, well done, Barry!
