    Meet Kolt Raynor. A Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, he is still trying to make sense of his life - and duty - after a secret mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders - one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.

    Story

    I love this genre. Read or listened to all the Flynns, Silva, Eisler, Coes. This book is right up there at the top. Great story, great character, no slow spots easy to follow and semi realistic for normal people probably very realistic for spec ops people. You can't go wrong with this one, worth every penny and minute of your time. The narrator was very good, the only reason he didn't get a five is because he didn't differetiate the characters voices enough but did a fine job. He wasn't boring or too slow.

    What makes a legendary assassin? For John Rain, it was the lessons of love, war, and betrayal he learned in Tokyo in 1972. Fresh from the killing fields of Southeast Asia, Rain works as a bagman under the watchful eye of his CIA handler, delivering cash to corrupt elements of the Japanese government. But when a delivery goes violently wrong, Rain finds himself in the crosshairs of Japan’s most powerful yakuza clan.

    I've listened to all of the Russell Blake books on audible. Each one is a delight. I love the Assassin Series and the narrator. You can't go wrong with any of russell Blake's books. He's very responsive on his website when you have questions. Definitely recommend.

    The first half of the book is putting together the characters and what's going on but there is action. The second half really takes off with everything you'd ever want with an action thriller. Definitely recommend.

William Fogarty, a time-toughened cop, hardened by personal tragedy, is shocked by the brutality of the crimes. His only lead comes from medical examiner Josef Tanaka. Half Japanese and half American, Tanaka, a skilled practitioner of the martial arts, claims to recognize the method used in the attacks: a karate strike known as nukite, or spear hand. Fogarty has nowhere else to turn.

    Good writing, original story and not really predictable. Really enjoyed it. Would love to see the sequel on audible. I had to speed up the narration a bit but I usually do that or else I start to drift. Probably needs it more so from this reader but not too bad. Overall worth your money or credit.

    I'm happy to report that this is an excellent book! I listen to 50 books a year, many from this genre i.e. all the Eislers, Flynn etc. This is right up there. Excellent main character, hightly skilled but not cartoonish. Great bad guys. I'm ready for the next immediately. Once I adapted to reader after first half hour or so, I found him very good. Took a little while to get used to his voice and keep from drifting. By the end I was able to differentiate all the characters clearly with his acting. I would definitely recommend this fast paced straightforward book!

    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.
