Rain Fall (A Clean Kill in Tokyo)
Book Number 1 in the John Rain Series.
Name: John Rain. Vocation: Assassin.
Speciality: Natural Causes.
Base of operations: Tokyo.
Half American, half Japanese, expert in both worlds but at home in neither, John Rain is the best killer money can buy. You tell him who. You tell him where. He doesn’t care about why…
Until he gets involved with Midori Kawamura, a beautiful jazz pianist–and the daughter of his latest kill.
“Eisler provides a cracklingly good yarn, well written, deftly plotted, and surprisingly appealing… Thomas Perry and Lawrence Block need not retire their hit men quite yet, but Eisler is clearly a challenger.”
