'Rain Fall' by Barry Eisler

Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club June selection

On Thursday, June 4, 6:30 p.m., we will discuss Barry Eisler's Rain Fall, first in the series featuring John Rain, a Japanese-American businessman based in Tokyo. Trained by the U.S. Special Forces and a veteran of Vietnam, he is a cool, self-contained loner who has built a steady business specializing in death by "natural causes."  He is also a man struggling with his own divided nature: Japanese/American, soldier/assassin, samurai/ronin.

Read more about the author and the series, including a most unusual "Mistakes" section, on his website at barryeisler.com.

The Cleveland Park Mystery Book Club meets on the first Thursday of the month, 6:30 p.m., at Barnes and Noble, 12th and E streets NW.
