All John Rain wants is to get out of the killing business. But with his discretion, his reliability, and his unique talent for death by "natural causes," no one is willing to let him just retire. So when an old nemesis from the Japanese national police force comes to him with a new job - eliminate Murakami, a killer even more fearsome than Rain himself - Rain knows he can't refuse. Aided by an achingly desirable half Brazilian, half Japanese exotic dancer he knows he shouldn't trust, Rain pursues his quarry through underground no-holds-barred fight clubs, mobbed-up hostess bars, and finally into the heart of a shadow war between the CIA and the yakuza. It's a war Rain can't win, but also one he can't afford to lose - a war where the distinctions between friend and foe and truth and deceit are as murky as the rain-slicked streets of Tokyo.

Better the second time around
Without a doubt! I have now relistened to all of the John Rain books. I really like this series a lot. I had previously listened to a couple of them by a different narrator and was not to impressed with the books but with Eisler narrating they are fantastic. I can not believe the difference. I had originally found them to drag but I do believe that was due totally to the narrator. These books really move right along at a fast pace. WOW!
The other John Rain books, the Gray Man books (Greaney),Victor the Assassin (Woods) and the El Ray books (Blake).
Excellent job narrating. He brings his characters to life.
I highly recommend this series now that they have been rereleased with the author narrating. They are at a lower price then they had been previously and are a much better listen.
