Winner Take All: John Rain, Book 3 | [Barry Eisler]

Winner Take All: John Rain, Book 3

John Rain has disappeared to Brazil to escape the killing business and the enemies encircling him in Japan. But the CIA isn't willing to lose its premier "natural causes" contract killer, and they force Rain to take on a high-risk assignment: eliminate a ruthless arms dealer operating in Southeast Asia. The upside? Financial, of course, along with the ongoing chimera of moral redemption. But first, Rain will have to survive the downside: a second assassin zeroing in on the target; the target's consort, an alluring and dangerous woman with an agenda of her own.

Publisher's Summary

John Rain has disappeared to Brazil to escape the killing business and the enemies encircling him in Japan. But the CIA isn't willing to lose its premier "natural causes" contract killer, and they force Rain to take on a high-risk assignment: eliminate a ruthless arms dealer operating in Southeast Asia. The upside? Financial, of course, along with the ongoing chimera of moral redemption. But first, Rain will have to survive the downside: a second assassin zeroing in on the target; the target's consort, an alluring and dangerous woman with an agenda of her own; the possibility that the entire mission is nothing but an elaborate setup. From the gorgeous beaches of Rio to the glitzy casinos of Macau to the gritty back streets of Hong Kong and Kowloon, Rain becomes a reluctant player in an international game far deadlier and more insidious than any he has encountered before.

    "Good stuff"

    Barry Eisler does a good job narrating his own books, I prefer his versions over the others. Rain is a fun hero character, and the stories are always exciting. It's easy to get tired of a series if you keep listening to the same one book after book, so I take breaks and go elsewhere, then return. This series is as entertaining as Mike Connelly, Vince Flynn or Brad Thor material, great authors but I can also tire of them. It's like anything else I guess. This idea targets a review that said Eisler's series was same old, same old. They all are after a while. Anyway, glad I found John Rain! If you like thrillers, give this a whirl, you won't be disappointed!

    "Love this series"

    Another solid effort by Mr. Eisler and John Rain. This is an entertaining read. Dox is the best supporting character I've read in a long time.

    "No one does it better-story or reading."

    I love the way this author tells his stories. The plots are filled with intrigue and his narration is excellent.

    "Overall it has everything this genre should have!"
    If you could sum up Winner Take All in three words, what would they be?

    Great in-depth characters & action


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    lots of twists and turns


    What about Barry Eisler’s performance did you like?

    his ability with the different languages and ascents were up there with the likes of Hill & Guidell just to name a few


    Any additional comments?

    It was great

    "Cheap Shot, Barry-"
    What would have made Winner Take All 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.
