    • Wowzers!Storytelling at it's best!Mark Len Mayfield has done it again!John Rain is a paid assassin who has decided to take some time to reflect on his career, pondering retirement. When he runs into an old friend desperate for help locating his sister. The story follows John as he unravels the mystery of where his friend, Mark's sister has disappeared to. Combating dirty cops and mob bosses John continues his pursuit to recover the missing woman. The story is unlike no other. I absolutely loved [...]


    • John Rain-Seriously?Barry Eisler tells a story with subtlety, nuance, and depth. Mr. Mayfield's story telling has more the feeling of a jackhammer. Mr. Eisler is a skilled and refined writer. Mr. Mayfield is desperately in need of an editor; who in god's name allowed him a franchise to write a John Rain story? The story itself is passable, the only reason it rates two stars.


    • It is okay butIt is okay butokay the story keeps you interested, but no where near the caliber of Eisler in terms of language,presentation and philosophical teaching. I wish the book was edited better as there were quite a few grammatical errors.


    • Eisler does it again. Rain is at his finest.Outstanding thriller again from Eisler. This time, Rain has to be not only good, but really, really lucky too. Can't wait for the next installment!


    • I was skeptical at firstAll the fan fiction I have started before wasn't good enough to finish. However this book was different. It seemed like another installment in the John Rain series. Quick read, entertaining, not perfect but overall a good book.



    • Ok. Good action, less insight by this author. Action in Seattle area. Uses guns more than marital arts.


    • One of the best short stories in The John Rain SeriesI chose 5 star review because it grabbed your interest from the first page and kept it til the finish.
