When John Rain, the Japanese American “contract killer with a conscience” (Entertainment Weekly), learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, he senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption. But Midori is being watched by Rain’s enemies, and his sudden appearance puts mother and child in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind. With the help of Tatsu, his friendly nemesis in the Japanese FBI, and Dox, the ex–marine sniper whose good ol’ boy persona masks a killer as deadly as Rain himself, Rain races against time to bring his enemies into the open and eliminate them forever. But to finish the job, he’ll need one more ally: Israeli intelligence agent Delilah, a woman who represents an altogether different kind of threat. Filled with “action-packed scenes worthy of a Jerry Bruckheimer film” (Sun-Sentinel), The Last Assassin is Barry Eisler’s most ambitious and most satisfying book yet.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Eisler handles all the story's locales, including Manhattan and Barcelona, with considerable aplomb.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This has been a consistently fine series, and its latest installment is no exception. Rain, the killer who wishes he could stop killing, is an engaging protagonist, and the author's depiction of the world of the assassin is vivid and well imagined.”


  • “Wicked action sequences, smoothly delineated local color and moments of introspection capture Rain in fine, fraught form.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “As with many similar books, this story features sex, spies, exotic locales, international intrigue, and some head-shaking plot twists. But with McConnohie's breathless reading style, the book never loses it focus or its ability to entertain.”


  • A 2007 Barry Award Finalist for Best Novel

    " This was the first of the Eisler books I've listened to instead of read. I think I'll read the rest instead. I wasn't that impressed with the narrator - the voice didn't match the voice I expected from John Rain. "
