    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    Do not be put off with the poor reviews of the narrator. This is a great story, Nick Sullivan is not as good as George I agree but once used to his way I found I had to listen non stop. It would be a shame not to listen because of bad reviews as the story is exceptional, the narrator does a good job. it is also important as a Mitch Rapp fan to know his story in order

    I put off buying this set because of the bad reviews on the narrator. DO NOT be put off, It took about 20 minutes to become accustomed to his style & it is quite good. The stories are excellent & I am happy with the narration, a great value set

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know, some one who thinks it makes them cool by saying it is enjoyable


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Andy Carpenter


    How could the performance have been better?

    Some enthusiam from the reader. & I do not like to critize readers but this is hard work


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Smiley's People?

    unfortunately around 80%


    Any additional comments?

    In all honesty I didn't listen to the entire book. I struggled for the first half, started on the second half but could not take it any more. I have put it away for when I feel strong enough to take the rest.

    When defence barrister Geoffrey Mason hears the judge's guilty verdict, he quietly hopes that a long and arduous custodial sentence will be handed down to his arrogant young client. That Julian Trent only receives eight years seems all too lenient. Little does Mason expect that he'll be seeing Trent again much sooner than he'd ever imagined....

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
