If you had to kill three people to save your best friend's life, would you do it?

When John Rain decides to get out of the business, his hand is forced by rogue CIA operative Jim Hilger. Hilger kidnaps Dox, Rain's trusted partner and closest friend, and offers Rain a choice: carry out a final assignment, or bear the responsibility for Dox's murder.

For a professional like John Rain, the choice ought to be easy: Do the job - a series of three hits - then walk away. But how does Rain know Jim Hilger won't kill Dox anyway, once the assignment is complete? How does he know that each of the hits isn't simultaneously a setup for Rain himself? And what will he do when he finds out that among the targets of this lethal game of extortion is someone else Rain cares about deeply?

From the urban canyons of Silicon Valley and New York to the lush forests of Bali, the boulevards of Paris, and the old killing fields of Vietnam, Rain must grapple with his age, his enemies, and most of all, his conscience in a battle that not even Rain can hope to survive intact.

    " I've gotten used to the Rain books, but this had more how to assasinate and spy craft and less plot than most. Eisler is perhaps trying to retire his assissin. Psychology of a killer (assasin) explored in detail. Moderately interesting. "

    " Finished the series, yay. Similar to the other books, and to what little I know of the topics. It was something decent to listen to while ironing. "

    " An excellent thriller where protagonit John Rain must deal with a nasty hostage situation. "

    " It's nice, with a series like this, to see actual, sensible, character growth. It would have been so easy for Eisler to write the same book over and over, but he doesn't. Throughout the whole series so far, we see Rain change and evolve as a person, rather than continuing on as a stone faced assassin. I mean he *is* that, but we see new facets of him, and explore deeper roots of his personality with each book. It's refreshing and immensely interesting. "
