Extremis: John Rain, Book 5 | [Barry Eisler]

Extremis: John Rain, Book 5

Even for an average citizen, a love triangle is dangerous business. For assassin John Rainn - "one of the most compelling lead characters in the genre" (USA Today) it's going to be downright deadly. When Rain learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, Rain senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption. But Midori and the child are being watched by Rain's enemies, and Rain's sudden appearance puts them in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind.

Publisher's Summary

Even for an average citizen, a love triangle is dangerous business. For assassin John Rainn - "one of the most compelling lead characters in the genre" (USA Today) it's going to be downright deadly.

When Rain learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, Rain senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption. But Midori and the child are being watched by Rain's enemies, and Rain's sudden appearance puts them in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind. With the help of Tatsu, his one-time nemesis in the Japanese FBI; and Dox, the former Marine sniper whose good ol' boy persona masks a killer as deadly as Rain himself, Rain races against time to bring his enemies into the open and eliminate them forever. But to finish the job, he'll need one more ally: Mossad operative Delilah, a woman for whom Rain's hopes with Midori represent an altogether different kind of threat....

    "Great narration!"
    Have you listened to any of Barry Eisler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope, this is my first and it's a great one!


    Any additional comments?

    Very nice, professional narration by the author himself. I always like listening to books narrated by their authors and Barry Eisler didn't disappoint. The narration was so good it's as if the book was read by a professional actor. I guess, working as a CIA operative in the past came in handy here. I mean to be a good intelligence operative you have to be a decent actor. Anyway, well done, Barry!

    Story
    "Wow The Chickens Came Home to Roost"

    The conflict in this story is so gut wrenching. Wow, make time because I don't think you will want to be interrupted. There is so much in this story I cannot put my thoughts down. It was well written, human, vulnerable, and ultimately painful. I am not sure how Barry Eisler has managed to make the killer human but he is. This entire series has been such a wonderful pleasure filled time for me. I didn't like The Descendants as much until I read Ben Treven's series. I understand better now and can appreciate how it was written. I just think Mr. Eisler is an awesome writer and narrator.

    "Cheap Shot, Barry-"
    What would have made Extremis better?

    I really enjoyed the Rain series - the first time. I purchased seven. When I saw all new titles, I was delighted and purchased five more! Until I realized they were the same books, Mr. Eisler just decided to rename them. A dishonest way to sell books, in my book! I'm done with Barry Eisler.
