Barry Eisler spent three years in a covert position with the CIA’s Directorate of Operations, then worked as a technology lawyer and startup executive in Silicon Valley and Japan, earning his black belt at the Kodokan International Judo Center along the way. He wakes up in whatever city he is in, kills who he is told to, and moves on to the next city. I kept plodding through as the speed of the story picked up, and then I enjoyed the story. I liked Ben, the hero, better than John Rain. Shiffman died of a heart attack but Alex knows that can’t be right as Hank was the healthiest man he ever knew.

For the men, I’d keep Barry. Horton decides to call off the operation, letting Alex, Sarah and Ben go free. They called him when they had nowhere else to turn. Always leaves me wanting more.
