Book review: Winner take all by Barry Eisler

Year published: Winner Take All  was originally published as Rain Storm in 2004.
Date I finished reading: December 2, 2016
Genre: Thriller
Rating: A

Review:  Winner Take All is the third novel in the John Rain series.

John Rain is a Japanese-American.  He likes whiskey and jazz and Tokyo.  He's got an unusual profession: Assassin. At the start of Winner Take All he has moved to Brazil and retired.  But the CIA wants to hire him again, to kill a middle eastern arms merchant.  He takes the job.  But it turns out to be more complicated than he thought, and involves (as usual in these novels) a beautiful woman, treacherous CIA agents, Rain's friend Dox (a sniper who he met in Afghanistan) and more twists than a corkscrew.

Good stuff!
