This is John Rain at his best; planning and executing operations across the US and in Europe and foiling others; and most detavhment of detaxhment, keeping this uneasy partnership together and alive.

The thought of false flag attacks on American soil, troubles me-it could happen. The book is well written and tautly plotted. While this book deserves the praise it gets, there are some points which cannot be overlooked, the biggest plot hole was the lack of a perceivable enemy and while the book does explain a lot in the end.

The hits are well done, I thought. After completing law school, Eisler joined the CIAwhere he trained for three years afterward and held a covert position with the Directorate of Operations.

I enjoyed it, even though it out of sequence with the Rain series.

Rain’s attempt to elicit Larison’s humanity as Dox did for him was a highlight. There’s a lot of commentary that would be seen as pro-Trump in just a few years, but this was written well before While on the subject of details, it can safely said that the author did his research very well and all the minute facts add to the strength of the subject matter.

Does Eisler have an agenda?

IMO this is in the bottom 2 or 3 books of the series. The author has to be commended for writing such a dark character and yet eieler him seem human at the same time. Esler was born in New Jersey, [1] his father was a wholesale office supplier, and his mother an environmental activist. The book starts with a terrific premise and then rushes to give the reader an excellent thrill ride all the way. It was long overdo. I am patiently awaiting the next installment.
