The Last Assassin

type
  • Book

Older, wiser, but maybe a bit rusty, rigorously lethal freelance assassin John Rain must take out old enemies within the Japanese yakuza if he ever hopes to make peace with the mother of his infant son.

Body Count
A whopping 20.

Worst Death
A double beheading via katana blade.

Lowdown
Eisler’s fifth Rain thriller is well-worn, but certainly gives good gunplay. And don’t let that extreme body count fool you: Eisler is just as keen on inner angst as on executions. Our deadly hero cries. Twice.
