For former Marine sniper Dox, a long-range hit in Cambodia was supposed to be just business as usual. But when you find yourself mixed up with rogue intelligence operations, gorgeous bar girls, and the world's worst human-trafficking heart of darkness, business is anything but usual. And making it personal is the most dangerous business of all.

I love the Dox character so this was a nice deviation from the typical book in the Rain series. He can be ruthless when needed, but inside he has a soft heart.
Dox was an excellent character in the John Rain series and this short story shows that he can stand out on his own as a main character.

A very short and thus inexpensive (don't spend a credit on it..I do mean short!) story of Dox, John Rains buddy and an experience in Cambodia.
Worth the bucks, I enjoy Eislers narration a lot.

This was my first Eisler book. I enjoyed the characters. His story drew me in quickly and kept me listening. I thought he did a great job with a short story. Enough so that I plan to try another novel by him.
Fascinated by science.
This is the first thing I've read/listen to by Barry Eisler. It won't be the last. Not only does he write a good story he reads it well, too. My only regret is that the story had enough legs to go on further and explore the aftermath of the events described. Thanks, Barry.
