Barry Eisler

Dear Reader,

THE DETACHMENT is the thriller John Rain fans have been waiting for. Rain, "the most charismatic assassin since James Bond" (San Francisco Chronicle), is back, and up against his most formidable enemy yet: the Oligarchy. To survive, Rain will need a detachment of other deniable irregulars: his partner, former Marine sniper, Dox; Ben Treven, a covert operator with conflicted loyalties; and Larison, a man with a hair-trigger temper and a secret he'll kill to protect.

"Eisler combines the insouciance of Ian Fleming, the realistic detail of Tom Clancy, the ennui of Graham Greene and the prose power of John le Carré." —News-Press

"Furious and creative... Rain's combination of quirks and proficiency is the stuff great characters are made of." —Entertainment Weekly

"No one is writing a better thriller series today than Barry Eisler. He has quickly jumped into my top ten best American mystery/thriller writers, along with Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Walter Mosley, and Harlan Coben... Rating: A." —Deadly Pleasures
