Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

John Rain, a Japanese American konketsu, or half-breed, learned his lethal trade as a member of the U.S. Special Forces. Although tortured by memories of atrocities he committed in Vietnam, he has become a paid assassin, a solitary man who lives in the shadows and trusts no one, even those who pay extraordinary sums for his ability to make murder look like natural death. But the aftermath of an otherwise routine hit on a government bureaucrat brings Rain to the attention of two men he knows from the old days in Vietnam: a friend who's now a Tokyo cop and an enemy who betrayed Rain long ago and is now the CIA's station chief in Japan. Like the gangster who hired Rain to kill Yasuhiro Kawamura, they want something the dead man had--a computer disk containing proof of high-level corruption, information that could destroy Japan's ruling political coalition. The search for the disk leads them to a woman Rain has come to love, a talented young jazz musician who also happens to be Kawamura's daughter. In this taut, brilliantly paced debut thriller, set in a vividly rendered Tokyo, the author manages an unlikely feat; he earns the reader's sympathy and concern for his protagonist, an amoral assassin who is one of most compelling characters in recent crime fiction. --Jane Adams

Rain Fall is a good book. The whole Rain series is a good series. This is the first with John Rain, Fujiwara Junichi.. if you like Japan you will love the settings of this book especially! It's worth reading if only to travel to all the intimate spots Rain visits. Rain (as a contract killer) works alone, apart from a computer nerd, Fukasawa Haruyoshi, Harry,whom he hires because of his hacking skills and who suspects and knows far more than Rain is aware of. Rain also starts a relationship (or better: a serious crush that feels like true love to him) with a "civilian" in his language, Kawamura Midori,a woman not at home in the world of organised and paid murder. This is one of the strong points, Rain has to hide what he is, as he always has to hide that, but simultaneosly he bares a lot of himself (NO pun intended) to Harry and Midori and wants and aches for someone to confide in. Won't tell you anything about how that turns out, but this book starts off a lot of developments, that will in the other books become important. It's in itself complete, it's gripping and well written. You don't have to be a cynic to love the Rain novels, his demons are depicted well and while un-japanese, he acknowledges them to derive from his catholic mother... that is funny in itself, in an unfunny way. The whole series is twisted, but in an intelligent way. You will read on, if you like this one!

The first mission for Tokio Killer John Rain is to kill a politician and make it look "natural". By completing this job he gets involved in a conflict between different groups. With his growing knowledge of the circumstances and his crush on a woman there are moral difficulties he needs to master.
The author emphasises the technics and strategies Rain uses to stay alive in his dangerous environnement. He also explains technics from martial arts like Judo. Furthermore Tokyo is described very well and vibrantly which makes the story even more fascinating. Facts about japaneese politics are given and fluently go over into fiction.
All in all the book is good to read and gives some hours of good entertainment.

This was fine, but not great. Two things annoyed me. The first is that it was told in first-person narration. For a protagonist who values secrecy and staying under the radar, I couldn't stop wondering who he was telling his story to and why. The second aspect that became tedious was the constant description of counter-surveillance measures he took while following someone or trying to avoid being followed. This comprised most of the first half of the book.

Having said that, it was entertaining and I enjoyed the Tokyo setting. Barry Eisler clearly knows a lot about the city and the concrete details he includes bring it to life.

In sum, if you keep your expectations in check, then you'll be satisfied.

Barry Eisler writes about things he knows about. He has had an interesting life and so this first novel is very exciting. The descriptions of Tokyo were very evocative. The action fast paced and the politics very believable. It is a hard ask to like a hero who kills for money.

If you like Jack Reacher, you will also fall for John Rain. Great thriller with nice surprises and a good deadcount. You will enjoy reading this on planes or trains and will not want to arrive at your destination before you have finished reading. A real page turner.

The Rain-series by Barry Eisler is the most believable, thrilling and tremendously entertaining work that I came across so far.
After having read all of Barry's thrillers at least twice, I can't wait for the next one.
