Publisher's Summary

After nearly dying while taking out a target in Hong Kong, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which wants him to fix a "problem" in Manila. He also has a new partner, Dox, whose good-ol'-boy persona masks a sniper as deadly as Rain himself. And he has a new hope: that by using his talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has taken. But when Rain's conscience causes him to botch the Manila hit, he finds out the next problem the Mossad wants fixed is himself. Is Delilah, his Mossad lover, coming to help him? Or was she sent to finish him off?

    "REDEMPTION GAMES redeems John Rain series"
    What did you love best about Redemption Games?

    I've tried the John Rain books before and wasn't a big fan, but then I tried the Ben Treven series and wanted more (there are only two so far). So, I went back to John Rain now that Barry Eisler is narrating them - WOW! What a difference. I'm now on a marathon and Love this series. I guess the reader really does make all the difference. This was such a good book. Great story, easy to follow and fast paced. Can't get over the difference, last Rain book I listened to I thought was boring, I'm relistening now and want them all.


    Have you listened to any of Barry Eisler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Barry Eisler narrates wonderfully. He did a smart thing reading his own works. I can't believe these are the same books. Five star listening material!

    Story
    "Enter Dox and Delilah"

    Among the best series I've read or listened to. Notice how inexpensive they are.

    I wrote an enthusiastically positive and extended review for Book 1: "Clean Kill in Tokyo."

    Eisler is a smart and accomplished guy. Checkout his website and his Wikipedia bio.

    In Book 4 John Rain is starting to build a team of characters. Both Dox and Delilah are good additions.

    I have been enjoying this series. Barry Eisler has done a great job developing characters over the course of this series. I find myself eagerly awaiting the next installment as I finish each book.

    "Good book in the series"

    Eisler narrating his own work is fantastic. reads right from the emotional source of the character.
    Good story overall, but make sure to listen to the series in sequence. Some of the deeper context of the story does not make sense without it.
    I am looking forward to listening to the next one.

    "Wonderful characters, gripping plot"
    Where does Redemption Games rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, I listen to 5 to 7 books a week, have bought well over 200, and I have to say, Barry Eisler is fast becoming one of my favorite authors, and he's definitely in my top three favorite narrators--just brilliant!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The developing characters of Rain and Dox and their growing friendship and trust is totally absorbing and believable and complex and funny and moving and I just want more and more and more!


    Have you listened to any of Barry Eisler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My favorite so far (I insist on reading a series in order, so the next one will probably instantly become my NEW favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh YES. I hated to stop for anything!


    Any additional comments?

    Please sir, I want some MORE!

    Story
    "I wish there were more of these I liked every one."

    It took me awhile to really get into this series because Rain's an assassin and killers suck. But obviously I'm an American and we're okay with killers as long as they're fun and do the impossible. Oh and don't kill kids and puppies. Impossible? Ya because if he truly was this quality of assassin discribed here why would he not take out Osama bin Laden for a 26 million dollar payday? But the price is right for this series maybe we get a discount on this bunch of audio books, I'm guessing because the author does the narration. Which he's actually very good at. Then the other things he does like write about actual settings in the books and detail real events and politics is interesting. I recommended because it's enjoyable.
