    If you had to kill three people to save your best friend's life, would you do it? When John Rain decides to get out of the business, his hand is forced by rogue CIA operative Jim Hilger. Hilger kidnaps Dox, Rain's trusted partner and closest friend, and offers Rain a choice: carry out a final assignment, or bear the responsibility for Dox's murder.

    Overall

    I like thrillers and mysteries and usually listen during my bus ride to & from work. "Req. for an Assassin" kept my interest nicely. The rather detailed information on assassination planning Isler works into the plot line was believable. The protagonist had human (but a little funny) flaws and was likeable. IF you really want to pick the book apart you could say the plot/ characters are not fully realistic, a tad weak; but it is fiction, after all, and not reality TV.
    I have always liked Scott Brick as a narrator and did here as well. I would recommend not listening to several books in a row read by him unless it is part of a series because some of his characterizations sound similar from book to book. Initially I found myself personifying Raine with characters from another author's book. BUT I've never had a problem with keeping which voice/accent belongs to which character in the books which Brick reads.
    I was very happy with this light-weight read and would be happy to listen to another book by the same author.
