A Lonely Resurrection - Barry Eisler
A Lonely Resurrection is a John Rain novel previously published as Hard Rain/Blood From Blood. This book is $3.99 for the kindle, but free for Amazon prime members. If you've never read a Rain novel give this one a try. It will stand on its own. John Rain is a Japanese/American assassin. John got his start in Vietnam and moved on to the CIA and then free lance work. John is trying to get out of the business, but he keeps getting pulled back in by his past. With all the people trying to kill John, he has to be very careful. The question is, can he count on his friends to be careful too? The author describes a Japan that is chilling in its level of corruption. This book has plenty of action, women, and of course killing. It's a little wordier than I prefer, but still highly recommended.
