What makes a legendary assassin? For John Rain, it was the lessons of love, war, and betrayal he learned in Tokyo in 1972.

Fresh from the killing fields of Southeast Asia, Rain works as a bagman under the watchful eye of his CIA handler, delivering cash to corrupt elements of the Japanese government. But when a delivery goes violently wrong, Rain finds himself in the crosshairs of Japan’s most powerful yakuza clan. To survive, Rain strikes a desperate deal with his handler: take out a high-profile target in the Japanese government in exchange for the intel he needs to eliminate his would-be executioners.

As Rain plays cat and mouse with the yakuza and struggles to learn his new role as contract killer, he also becomes entangled with Sayaka, a tough, beautiful ethnic Korean woman confined to a wheelchair. But the demands of his dark work are at odds with the longings of his heart—and with Sayaka’s life in the balance, Rain will have to make a terrible choice.

Guy Kawasaki Reviews Barry Eisler’s Graveyard of Memories

There are some things in life that you don’t want to end. Massages, Thanksgiving dinner, and Steve Jobs product introductions are in this group. If you’re into thrillers, I would add Graveyard of Memories.

About the Author:

Bestselling and award-winning author Barry Eisler writes black ops thrillers with the assurance of one who knows: for three years he held a covert position with the CIA’s Directorate of Operations. Afterward, he became a technology lawyer and startup executive in Silicon Valley and Japan, earning his black belt at the Kodokan International Judo Center along the way. Eisler’s thrillers have earned numerous distinctions, including the Barry Award and the Gumshoe Award for Best Thriller of the Year. He’s been on numerous “Best Of” lists, and his work—including the #1 bestseller The Detachment—has been translated into nearly twenty languages. When not writing novels, he blogs about torture, civil liberties, and the rule of law. Eisler lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
