It was fun, contemporary spy/assassin novel. I think this was the second book with Rain in it & I haven't read the first. It stood alone well & was pretty good. There were a few too many digressions with Rain philosophizing over his life & situation, feeling sorry for himself due to the way he is cut off from having a close relationship with a woman. It got old by the end, but it was the major theme of the book & the overall hook. The paranoia in his life was severe & he did find he could trust one person, much to his surprise. The lead to it was a bit heavy handed, though.

I doubt I'll ever want to read it again, but it was an enjoyable diversion.

Update March2017: Rereading as an audio book (Review Here) as I go through the series in order. This is the third book, not second. Since it is now on its third title, I'm not surprised there is some confusion. I hate it when books are renamed. It's hard enough keeping all of them straight.
