Braccato e infine messo all'angolo, John Rain deve affrontare il suo peggior nemico di sempre: se stesso.Per Rain, "l'assassino più carismatico dai tempi di James Bond" (San Francisco Chronicle), uscire dal giro non è un'impresa facile. Ma con una nuova identità a Parigi e l'aiuto della sua compagna, l'agente del Mossad Delilah, sta per lasciarsi alle spalle la carriera di killer.Un giorno, però, riceve un messaggio da un disertore della CIA, l'agente operativo Jim Hilger: Abbiamo il tuo amico Dox. Se non fai quello che ti chiediamo, morirà.Per un professionista come Rain, la scelta dovrebbe essere facile: portare a termine il lavoro - una serie di tre omicidi - e salvare l'amico e collega. Ma come può essere certo che, una volta concluso l'incarico, Hilger non uccida comunque Dox? Come fa a sapere che uno di quei tre colpi non sia una trappola? E, soprattutto, come potrà controllare la rabbia assassina che il letale ricatto di Hilger riaccende in lui?Dalle spiagge apparentemente tranquille di Bali ai vicoli e ai boulevard di Parigi, dai canyon urbani della Silicon Valley e di New York ai vecchi campi di battaglia del Vietnam, Rain deve fare i conti con l'età, i nemici e soprattutto il killer che ha dentro, in una lotta da cui neppure lui può sperare di uscire indenne.

Previously published as Hard Rain and Blood from Blood All John Rain wants is to get out of the killing business. But with his discretion, his reliability, and his unique talent for death by "natural causes," no one is willing to let him just retire. So when an old nemesis from the Japanese national police force comes to him with a new job--eliminate Murakami, a killer even more fearsome than Rain himself--Rain knows he can't refuse. Aided by an achingly desirable half Brazilian, half Japanese exotic dancer he knows he shouldn't trust, Rain pursues his quarry through underground no-holds-barred fight clubs, mobbed-up hostess bars, and finally into the heart of a shadow war between the CIA and the yakuza. It's a war Rain can't win, but also one he can't afford to lose--a war where the distinctions between friend and foe and truth and deceit are as murky as the rain-slicked streets of Tokyo. "...a superlative job...entertaining and suspenseful enough to keep you turning the pages as fast as your eyes can follow." --Chicago Sun Times

She'll have to relive the horrors of the past. Take on one of the most powerful men in the US government. And uncover a conspiracy of almost unimaginable evil. In every way, it's an unfair fight.
