review 1: Although I’ve read several John Rain books, they weren't in any particular order and other than Rain, I did not recall the recurring characters in this particular book. Not a problem—Barry Eisler captured my attention from the first page to the last. And with other Rain books, Th...

review 1: The lesbian aspect of this novel was 4 stars, but the agent part was lower, hence the 3 rating. It's rare to read a such a great lesbian sex scene written by a male. I felt the pain of the main characters as they were scared and falling for one another. All of the positive being ...

review 1: WOW - John Rain and Dox together again - what fun! The Detachment is the best so far in the John Rain series, with the action we crave along with political intrigue. No absence of plot here...the story fairly races along and is absolutely unputdownable. The ending was a tiny bit...

review 1: I thought this short story was pretty BORING......Snooze city. As anyone who follows my reviews knows, I am an action/zombie/horror junkie. I love the John Rain books in which Dox plays a suppporting role (and does a very good job at it). But here not much happens and Dox is a...

review 1: After finishing "Graveyard of Memories", I wanted a little more John Rain so picked this up for a buck. It's a quick, easy read, ostensibly about one evening in the relationship between he & Delilah but the end makes it seem like a turning point.John is fighting to go straight. T...

review 1: The Khmer Kill was good good stuff!! Eisler does a phenomenal job of taking words and painting pictures as clear as movies! He goes into crystal clear detail about the setting, the mood, the energy...Ive never been to anywhere near Asia, but I can imagine every scene as im readin...

review 1: The author's professional experience and his tremendous talent as a storyteller make this short story a very enjoyable read. Eisler’s rich details build up clarity rather than confuse. The dialog is crisp, actions precise. Where the minutiae of Tom Clancy's novels drag his reader...

review 1: Eisler is not a terrible writer. Visually he's both precise and thorough, allowing his readers to see a whole scene in short bursts of imagery. But he suffers from a handicap I've noted in the very few thrillers I've read. The drama he attempts in the penultimate and ultimate cli...

review 1: I completely loved this book. I couldn't put it down. This wasn't a surprise since I've liked all of Eisler's John Rain novels (I can't say that about the short stories - see my reviews of those if you're interested). This book takes us back to the beginning of Rain's CIA career....
