For Delilah, the Mossad's top seductress, the parameters of the assignment were routine. The contractor: MI6. The objective: infiltrate a terror network, this one operating out of London. The stakes: a series of poison gas attacks on civilian population centers.There's just one wrinkle. The target is a woman - as smart, beautiful, and committed as Delilah herself. And for a cynical operative thrust suddenly out of her element, the twists and turns of the spy game are nowhere near as dangerous as the secrets and desires of the human heart.

Totally unlike the Delilah we've come to know. Still clever and cunning, cautious and surprising. Ultimately quite sad. I'd like to see where she goes from here. I'm still hopeful for her and John Rain. It would be nice if they could teach her controllers a lesson!
A good novella, even more so because it is part of the Kindle Unlimited package and alone would be worth the monthly subscription. (Maybe).
"VERY sexy Lesbian moments-be prepared"
WOW can Eisler write a killer woman with woman sex scene. If this isn't your thing, I suggest you avoid this novella length supplement to the John Rain series.
The story was a great one and sex wasn't the only thing it was based on..a good plot line and we got to know the new character fairly well.
Enjoyable if you enjoy reading a sexy book...not much more than a Nora Roberts book but more explicit IMO.
A shortie..don't spend a credit on it..just buy it.
I love Barry Eisler books. He's also one of my favorite narrator's. Can't wait to start a new book.
"It is hard to imagine that I have read now read all of his story's"
I enjoyed having a short story for a change. It was no less enjoyable for that reason though. I guess I have become addicted to his characters after this many books in a row. Like all the rest I could not I put it down.
"Delilah Is Too Demsnding"
It's in the low third. It's a short story and you must have read all,the previous John Rain novels to understand its significance.
It is similar to,the earlier John Rain novels since she is introduced through this story. She and John have a lot in common altho,she accepts her lifestyle easier then he accepts his.
When John asks her if she can handle two then takes off down the street and beard up,the other four. The last man was damaged more than I thought necessary but he us an assassin after all.
I was sorry that Delilah and John split. I hope they reconnect in a new John Rain book.
Great series. Kudos to Barry Eisler for creating the characters and then bringing them to life with his voice.
"Eisler continues to have new and different plots"
Too often the hero or heroin is the same but with different names. The same plots are repeated as well. This continues the "no two alike" that Eisler produces.
"good story bit niave"
the writer did a good job very nice story. The writer made one side competent other side inept.
"Good Short Listen"
Enjoyed this short story about Delilah from her perspective. In this listen she is in London on assignment, but this time it's to befriend a woman as opposed to a relationship with a man.
During the assignment and afterward she struggles with decisions she had to make and the consequences.
Give me a way to cancel an order I placed by mistake.
Only $1.99 but I am just as angry as I would have been had it been $199.00.
