    " I found this to only be an average book for me. I listened to it on my roadtrip from NJ back to Florida. At times the story seemed to drag on a little to much. At least it did keep me entertained while driving. "

    " Excellent reading overall. I find I like Eisler's thrillers even more than Lee Child's, because we are able to see Rain's doubts, turmoil, and most importantly, growth as a character throughout the books, which is something sorely lacking in Lee Child's Reacher character. "

    " Honestly, I chose this book because it had a cool-sounding title and I was looking for an action book. It did not let me down in the "action" department. The main character, John Rain, is a paranoid assassin trying to get out of the business while destiny itself seems to be against him. His best (and only) friend, Dox, is kidnapped and in order to save him, Rain has to do three jobs. Feeling he has no choice, he starts stalking his victims, knowing that the third job may well be a setup for himself. This book is wonderfully action packed, and you just can't help but sympathize with Rain. Some parts were a bit boring, because they involved a lot of stake-out, and some scenes were rated a bit R-ish, but otherwise I really enjoyed the book. My favorite character was Dox, because even at the hands of his obviously sadistic kidnappers he makes cracks at them and annoys them. You've gotta love a wise-mouth. I aslo liked one of the kidnappers, but he ended up dead pretty early in the book, so that was a bit sad. The book leaves off on a rather optimistic/ bittersweet note, which was very fitting for such a book. "
