    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 have listened to or read all of these books and I honestly think that this one was the best as it had, it seems to me, more character development than many of the previous books. I have enjoyed them all but damn if this one didn't hit me hard. I listen to music because of how it makes me feel, hell because it makes me feel. This book felt good and was definitely a good listen. Thank you Mr. Eisler.

    In an Istanbul hotel, a deep source warns a CIA agent that Iran intends to kill a CIA station chief. Quickly, John Wells is called in to investigate, but before he can get far, the tip comes true. Which means that the next warning the source gives will be taken very seriously indeed. And it’s a big one. We’ve put a package on a ship from Dubai to the United States. A radioactive one. A bomb? Not yet. It’s a test run.

    I have read all of this series to date and I really liked this story until about what should have been halfway through the book we went to the end. It's as if he hit his deadline and said f**k it, that will have to do. At least warn us next time.

    I have liked all of the Gray Man books to date but this one I found myself not able to leave alone. Usually I listen in my car to and from work. This one had me going so much I would find myself wondering how in the hell he was going to get out of this or that situation. I ended up listening at my desk during (ok, and a little bit after) lunch. I've never done that. Sometimes doing chores around the house but never at work. It had a lot of action and a little more character development which I welcomed. I am starting on the last of the series tomorrow.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Story

    I found the last few books somewhat disappointing, They were adequate but I believe if you were not a fan of the series there would have been little reason to recommend them. This book could stand on it's own except for Reacher's obsession with reaching Virginia. It was a fast paced story that I did not want to stop listening to. I was late to work a few mornings as I needed to finish a chapter in the car before going in to work. I truly enjoyed this one and I hope the character makes it to Virginia someday........

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    I have resisted Stephen King books and this series in particular for a long time out of some not so well masked prejudice against horror authors. I was swayed after reading 11/22/63. My preferences tend to go towards mystery / suspense and absurd humor. I checked out reviews of King's other works and figured I'd give this one a shot. If you are stuck looking for something different I suggest you try this book as it has opened a whole new world for me. Damn, I need more credits.

    It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.

    Celebrated crime master and two-time Edgar Award winner James Lee Burke returns with a gorgeously crafted, brutally resonant chronicle of violence along the Texas-Mexico border. Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a small Southwest Texas border town, meting out punishment and delivering justice in his small square of this magnificent but lawless land. When an alcoholic ex-boxer named Danny Boy Lorca begs to be locked up after witnessing a man tortured to death by a group of bandits, Hack and his deputy, Pam Tibbs, slowly extract the Indian man’s gruesome tale.

    I'm sorry if you are looking for objectivity in a review, because you'll find none here. I love everything this man writes. The narration by Will Patton is the only thing that could possibly make it better than it is.
