really liked it

Great book! The body count is higher than a Rambo movie, but presented matter of factly. The Japanese culture background is really interesting, with some American culture mixed it. The author knows how keep your interest. John Rain, born of an American mother and a Japanese father, struggled as a child to fit in with the Japanese culture that did not accept him because of his mixed heritage. He didn't fair much better when he lived in the United States, where his Asian features made him a target. He learned to defend himself, and learned he was really good at it. The Viet Nam war honed is killing skills, and he earns his living as a hit man, thinking of himself as an indpendent contractor, not realizing how manipulated he is.
