“Another high-fatality, high-spirited revenge fantasy.” —Kirkus
“Eisler juggles the complicated plot and large cast, imbuing his diverse characters with robust backstory and emotional motivation.” —Publishers Weekly
“Eisler’s eleventh novel to star John Rain is a spectacular revenge story. Eisler, who was briefly a covert operative for the CIA, has an energetic writing style: his dialogue gets right to the point, and his action scenes are clean and vividly rendered. The John Rain novels seem to fly under the radar of many genre fans, even though they deserve to sit alongside Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels and Vince Flynn and Kyle Mills’s Mitch Rapp thrillers.” —Booklist
