The first in the series of John Rain books. This is a good action story taking place in Tokyo. It has a twisting plot, but not misleading, and keeps you guessing who the good guys are. I will be sure to read the next in the series.
Hard-edged thriller featuring John Rain, a half-American, half-Japanese hit man living in Tokyo. First in a series and I will definitely be reading more. Good intrigue, lots of cultural detail about Japan and a likable main character, despite the despicable work he does.
John Rain kills people. For a living. His specialty: making it seem like death by natural causes. But he won't kill just anyone. The target must be a principal player. And never a woman. Half American, half Japanese-but out of place in both worlds-Rain is filled with opportunities. John Rain may not be a good man, but he's good at what he does...
Until he falls for the beautiful daughter of his last kill.
