  • “Compelling.”

    - San Francisco Chronicle
  • “Taut and compelling…The plot has enough twists and turns to satisfy, and Eisler is an adept hand at pacing and suspense…Various exotic Asian locales add to the appeal.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Eisler unspools a plot full of warring secret government connections, cool spy paraphernalia, and vivid martial arts sequences.”

    - Entertainment Weekly
  • “The Rain series has been compared to Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels, but there’s one important difference: Fleming never took Bond seriously, and Eisler takes Rain very seriously indeed…Nicely detailed action here.”

    - Booklist
  • “Plenty of good action…A thriller as straight as an arrow, even when mildly deflected by the winds of conscience. The ending leaves much unanswered, so, thankfully, expect more Rain.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “High-octane action.”

    - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
  • “Michael McConnohie is adept at pacing and suspense, and Eisler’s plot has enough twists to maintain interest. The setting of exotic Manila adds to the drama.”

    " Took a while to get into, but had some clever lines and interesting/odd characters. Story was fine - not too complex, but had some twist and suspense. Narrator was great. "

    " This book was good, but I didn't like it quite as much as the previous volumes in the series. It had great action, as always and setup the next book well. I listened to the audio book, which was very well done. "

    " I'm crazy about assassins so I love this protagonist. A smart and sexy Japanese killer for hire. Will read all of this series, preferably in order, if my library will cooperate. "
