Meet John Rain. Assassin. He follows his own code - he needs no one, trusts no one - until betrayal transforms him from hunter into hunted and loner into loyal friend. Haunted by the past Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, "Rain Fall" marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

Top 100 Books Reviewer

I approached Barry Eisler's Rain Fall with sceptical anticipation after being recommended by a friend based on my love of Lee Child books. I have to say I was very impressed, from the opening scene to the end of this book it tells a compelling story mixed with brutal action and deeper characterisation than Lee Child gives. The central character, John Rain is a half-Japanese and Half-American professional assassin who lives in the shadows. His latest assignment seems simple enough but the fallout couldn't be more deadly and sees Rain fighting to save himself and others around him as the twists and turns of the plot reveal what has really been going on. Apart from a bit in the middle where the scene setting is a little slow, this moves at a terrific pace and feels a little more believable than offerings by the likes of Child or Matt Reilly. Thoroughly recommended - i will now be reading the rest of the series with excitement. It's a shame Barry Eisler isn't more popular as I feel he is developing a deeper character than most books in this genre offer.

This book marks the start of an amazing journey into the life of John Rain. Barry Eisler has created a set of characters that compliment each other perfectly. The action and detail you get makes you feel like you are watching a film instead of reading a book!!! You will be hooked from cover to cover and then be ordering the next book as soon as you have finished.
