A story about this — 4 years ago
Barry Eisler’s latest novel departs from the John Rain series to two estranged brothers in the west coast, as different as they can be: one (Ben) a soldier running black ops, and the other (Alex) a lawyer in a well-heeled law firm doing patent and software work. But when Alex’s client and the patent examiner reviewing his new software are murdered, and Alex looks to be next, he calls his big brother for help. Adding to the mix is Alex’s Iranian female co-worker, whom Alex has a crush on and Ben does not trust.
Although I missed the exciting locales of the “Rain” series, I enjoyed the writing and storyline in this book as much as the “Rain” series. It was really hard to put it down. Eisler proves again he is a master storyteller.
