Government assassin John Rain is a man trying to leave his violent past behind. But after tracking him down in Brazil, his former employers, the CIA, persuade him to take on a high-risk assignment and one to which his particular skills are well suited: to terminate with extreme prejudice a man who deserves to die. For Rain the death of an evil man offers a shot at redemption. But before he can even get close, Rain will have to draw on his formidable talents just to survive. Because he's not the only killer closing on the target and it could be that the entire mission is cover for an elaborate set up. From the casinos of Macao to the deadly backstreets of Hong Kong "Rain Storm" is a brilliantly realized international thriller: gripping, atmospheric, meticulously researched and adrenalin-filled. Martial arts expert and consummate covert operative, John Rain is, in the words of one reviewer, an action hero with all the right ingredients'. With shades of the Jackal, Bourne and Bond, thriller fans will recognize in John Rain a authentic new hero for the 21st century from a writer at the top of his game.
