hard rain is my first introduction to john rain and it isn,t bad. he is a killer who makes people,s deaths look natural. he has a code about his choices. no women, no children, and there must be significant reason for the death. he is trying to get out of this life but his former boss wants him to do one more job for him. my only problem is not knowing much about chinese culture i didn,t understand the bars or some of the language that was used but that,s just a small issue. otherwise it was an intelligent and worthwhile read and i,ll check out his other rain books.

This novel is not quite as strong as Rain Fall was, but the story is a good one. The stakes are high, but the payoff is a bit smaller. We will be fighting Yamaoto for another day. Still, Rain is a fantastic character and Eisler an oustanding writer. He is much better writer than many of fellow authors in this genre. This story lacks a bit of the depth and context of the first, but remains fascinating in descriptions and Japanese politics. Will Rain ever find peace? Must read the next to find out!

This one is impossible to put down! You will read it until the end and then wish there were more works by this author to put your hands on. This is absolutely spellbinding, it grips your gut, occupies your mind, and takes your breath away. Once it was finished, I had to catch my breath and brake the ticker, but I could not stop the gray matter synapses. I'm not entirely sure, but I guess that's what a superb thriller is supposed to do.
I am an avid reader and can assure you that it's not too often that I come across a book like this one. Can't wait for the next book in this series. Sign me up for it, I'm hooked!

Hard Rain was an exciting and thrilling book which bested his debut book Rain Fall.
I was captivated by the storyline and was taken through a wild and adventureous journey as if I was right their with John Rain.
Hard Rain is an exciting book with everything in it: drama, tension, excitment and more. I recommend this book to anyone interested in these senses. Barry Eisler did an excellent job in Hard Rain and I can't wait for his next book to come out "Rain Storm."

Boy,can this guy create a cool character! I liked his first book better,this one is a bit darker and slower, yet can't wait for more!

Most reviews here are raving - and they are ALL RIGHT! Barry Eisler can surely write circles around most bestsellers today.

Keep them coming Barry!

Format: Hardcover
Like a good glass of wine, the character John Rain stayed with me after I finished the audiobook. Rain is an assassin with ethics and a highly developed sense of paranoia who specializes in natural-seeming kills and hand-to-hand engagements, and who seems to live only in hotels. The fight/kill scenes are exciting and intensely cinematic, and also seem very authentic. The Tokyo portrait is graphically, contextually beautiful. But what really intrigues me is the conflict between Rain's need for isolation that keeps him safe in a highly dangerous environment and the way he is drawn into emotionally connecting relationships that could kill him or his friends/lovers. I will definitely read Rain Fall (I wish it were out in audio) and look forward to the next sequel. I want to see how Eisler treats Rain's aging (Vietnam era) and future relationships. And hopefully there will be an equally strong female character who challenges him out of the safety zone of isolation for more than the length of a (well-written) sexual encounter.

In most series, the first book in the series is the best. Not so here. Eisler delivers in Hard Rain a fantastic followup to his first book, Rain Fall! Not only does it continue the engaging John storyline, but Hard Rain stands on its own as a great story in its own right.
As always, Eisler captures a view of Tokyo that is unique. He draws us in to a Tokyo that few residents, much less visitors, fully experience. Having lived in there for a few years, and having some familiarity with the, shall we say, less than polite parts of Tokyo, I can attest that Eisler's portrayal is dead on.
I look forward to continuing to follow Rain's life and adventures.
My only question is, when will we see these characters on the big screen as well???

Format: Hardcover
Rain Fall ended with several loose ends around, "But if X and Y happened, wouldn't Z happen too?" There were several character holes, and a few logical consequences that needed to be followed.
Would the bad guys really believe John Rain's fake death? What would happen to Midori? Wasn't Harry traceable?
The book opens up more of John Rain's character, showing both his strenghts and some more obvious weaknesses. (Why can't spies like him not shag every girl they meet?) It also closes several loose ends hanging over from previous books. We learn more about John Rain's ruthlessness, as well as which rules he's willing to bend, and which not.
The plot gets complex near the end. You're left with enough "But what about this?" items to guarantee another episode. (At least I hope so!) If there's one downside of the book, perhaps a few of the supporting charachters (particularly in the CIA) were not as believable as I'd expect.
The equisite writing of Tokyo life continues to capture the reader. It'll introduce you in a very realistic way to one of the world's great cities. If you've been there, this should bring back some great memories.
Enjoy!
