Eisler has produced. The character of John Rain is a fascinating one.
ISBN 13: 9780399153594
He loves single-malt scotches and knows which bars have the best selection. He is a huge jazz fan who is at home in both large and small venues. He makes a considerable living killing. He is so obsessed with anonymity that he has foregone any serious friendships so he is a lonely man despite his successes. Beyond the man himself, however, is some fantastic writing with incredibly tight, cohesive plots, more than you could hope for descriptions of locales, and dialogue that is completely believable. Whether Rain is in Japan, Brazil, or Macao, you are too and the places are brought to life so much that you feel you are walking down the street with Rain.
