A Man of Horrible Skills

My latest review is up on January Magazine, and it's a long one: over 1500 words on Rain Storm, Barry Eisler's latest thriller featuring Japanese-American hitman John Rain.

Here's the summary:
Just when he thought he could retire from the assassin business, Japanese-American John Rain is sucked into an assignment in China that has him jousting with an Algerian smuggler, a hillbilly sniper and an exotic, formidable woman with her own agenda.
Eisler is a very gifted writer and this is his best book yet. The Rain books (this is the 3rd) should definitely be on your reading list.
