Thanks to Brad’s glowing review of Barry Eisler, I picked up Rain Fall yesterday and am already engrossed. Eisler’s got an easy style, and speaks with authority on everything from locale (that Eisler lived in Japan for several years is obvious) to tactics (turns out Eisler was a covert operative for the CIA for 4 years in the early 90s). I’m excited to get started on this series, as there are three other titles in the series (with a fourth coming in June).
As Brad pointed out, Eisler has a blog, titled The Heart of the Matter. Side note: always nice to see other non-practicing-lawyers do well. ;)
