    When John Rain, the Japanese/American "contract killer with a conscience" (Entertainment Weekly), learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, he senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption.

    Story

    This review applies to this book and the previous, "Killing Rain". Mr McConnohie is completely inappropriate as John Rain. He changes the character, the overall sensibility of the narrative, and quality of the writing (he would be okay for the character Dox). I found myself wondering if Barry Eisler had actually written books 4 and 5. The PERFECT John Rain was Brian Nishii--books 1 and 3. However, this is my subjective opinion. I would encourage new listeners to compare the samples for book 1 and either book 4 or 5.

    Requiem for an Assassin (2007)
    The Detachment (2011)
