I had not read Eisler's book's before, but came away impressed with his military knowledge and planning. His characters in the book are four men , very different in personality. and they maintain these differences throughout the book. Four men on a mission to precipitate civilian unrest, by killing leading figures in government and blaming it on "terrorists" in order to permit the perpetrators to take over the leadership. Things do not work out as planned and the perpetrators turn out to be the bad guys, but are they all bad?
The four killers have their own personality differences and the plot thickens. A very detailed story, well told and for me enjoyable.

Like all of Barry Eisler's books, it's top notch. It incorporated characters from his previous books and as always it was action packed, very well detailed and well written. I've read all of the books and short stories Barry has written and I've enjoyed all of them. I would recommend reading some of his other John Rain books to get a feel for the characters then read this, all though this book can stand alone. I rather look forward to any more books or short stories Barry writes! He's a talented author.

I am reviewing all the John Rain novels with the same commentary. Absolutely loved the series, the character John Rain, lots of action and it's a real, sorry for the cliche, page turner. I liked all the books in the series as I read them all in the space of 3 weeks.
