John Rain, an assassin specializing in death by natural causes, gets involved with the daughter of his last target, and drawn into a deeper maze of intrigue that reach to the highest levels of the Japanese government. In the process John's life is turned upside down, and he is forced to deal with unresolved issues from his past that have made him the man he is.

Quite a good book with a lot of exciting action. There was a space of maybe 75 pages or so when there was little action, they were just following up leads and trying to figure out what was going on without really getting anywhere. Although you are exposed to quite a travelogue view of Tokyo during this period. After that the pace picked up and really delivered all the way to the end.

If you are at all interested in Japanese culture and language, this book is loaded with it. There are a lot of Japanese names, places, phrases and sentences sprinkled throughout (good luck reading it out loud).
