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.

It is a good read though bit short and dependent on earlier books.
I am out of order with this one it seems that I would need to be in order.I need the prior one where these 2 met.
It seemed like a good performance.
Yes and no it was incomplete.
I needed the book where these people met.
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.
