About This Book
Alex Treven has sacrificed everything to make partner in his high-tech law firm. But then the inventor of a technology Alex is banking on is murdered, the patent examiner who reviewed the innovation dies, and Alex himself narrowly escapes an attack in his own home. Off balance and running out of time, he knows that the one person who can help him is the last person he’d ever ask: his brother.

Ben Treven is a military liaison element, an elite undercover soldier paid to “find, fix, and finish” high-value targets in the United States’ global war on terror. Disenchanted, Ben lives his detached life in the shadows because the black ops world is all he really knows–and because other than Alex, his family is long gone.

But when Ben receives Alex’s frantic call he hurries to San Francisco to help him. Only then does Alex reveal that there’s another player who knows of the technology: Sarah Hosseini, a young Iranian American lawyer–whom Ben immediately distrusts. To survive the forces arrayed against them, they’ll first have to survive one another.

  • Hard Rain

    Hard Rain
    In his critically acclaimed Rain Fall, Barry Eisler introduced half Japanese-half American freelance hit man John Rain, a "dashing and dangerous hero...as likable as he is lethal." Now Eisler's back. So is Rain, the master of death by "natural causes" whose new target threatens the fragile political balance of an entire country.

    Requiem For An Assassin

    Requiem For An Assassin
    Suppose you had to kill three people to save your best friend’s life? For John Rain, it should be easy: three fast hits and disappear. But what if you figured your friend is probably going to die anyway? What if you started to think the whole thing was a setup? And what if you were afraid three was just the beginning? John Rain’s going to give it a shot.

    Killing Rain

    Killing Rain
    Now Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which wants him to fix a “problem” in Manila with the aide of his new partner, Dox, whose good-ol’-boy persona masks a sniper as deadly as Rain himself. He also has a new hope: By using his talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has taken. But when Rain’s conscience causes him to botch an assignment, he finds that he’s the Mossad’s next target.…

    The Last Assassin

    The Last Assassin
    When freelance assassin John Rain learns that his former lover has been raising their child in New York, he senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even redemption. But Midori is being watched by Rain's enemies, and Rain's sudden appearance puts mother and child in mortal danger.
