For most couples, a quiet dinner for two at Auberge de la Reine Blanche on the Ile Saint Louis would be just the thing to smooth out the complications in a romance. But for gorgeous Mossad operative Delilah and trying-to-retire contract killer John Rain, nothing is ever easy, and when Rain sees a crew of hard-looking men setting up outside the restaurant, he realizes someone has been bringing her work home with her. Is it a hit - or something even worse? When it comes to killing, business and pleasure are the most dangerous mix of all.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This story is about the final breakup of John Rain and Israeli spy Delilah in Paris. The story is nothing special, the the narration of author Barry Eisler is.
It explains a bit about John Rain's tempestuous relationship with his lover and the reason for his return to Tokyo.
John Rain he is inscrutable.
Barry Eisler's interpretations and accents of the different characters are a delight to listen to, he should be on the stage, he is thorougly entertaining and brings the book and the characters to li
Follow Rain series and this was an important part of the series.
Yes it did. Typical Rain observance and deductions.
Short and Deadly
This is a short story, so it doesn't rank with the other books on Audible. However, I will tell you I liked the fact that Eisler provided a background/bridge story on the Rain-Delilah story line. It is an excellent short story for those of us that are Rain fans. The setup and the action are outstanding.
The way that the characters turned their personal issues into problems for predators waiting for them.
Of course when Rain and Delilah turn the tables on the attackers. I love when predators run into bigger predators through their folly.
I'm no fan of short stories. It's like giving me a slice of cheese cake and saying all I can have is a lick! But Barry Eisler was able to create a snippet of a tale and make it satisfying nonetheless. I also love the narration by him. It is obvious he has worked on it as it is always improving. So please Barry, more Ben Treven stories

BE stories are always amazing! John and Paris are a very dangerous and stunningly exciting couple.. I hope this is not their end.
Yes. But first the books leafing up,to this one must be read.
The way she and he worked together.
John Rain of course.
Delilah may not need a Samson....
Love all of Barry's books.
This is a (very) short story about John Rain's struggle with having his girlfriend, Delilah, in "the life" while he has quit. He has the realization that maybe the two just don't mix.
Rain ends it
Always to good to know more about John Rain

You can always be happy with a John Rain story. Even if its only a short one.
"very short but very good"
More of a single scene thing rather than a novella but Barry reads a great story, very well.
