The Detachment

Tell Me A Story - Book Review

Author - Barry Eisler
Title - The Detachment
Stars - 5

The Detachment:
When renowned veteran Colonel Scott Horton traces Jon Rain in Tokyo, Rain can’t refuse his offer of a multi-million dollar fee for the termination of three high-profile targets, who are alarmingly close to initiating a coup in America.

The adversary on this job is going to be too much for Rain to pull off alone. He will need help from former associates, who unfortunately have uncertain motives and conflicting loyalties.
From the backstreets of Tokyo and Vienna, to the ostentation of Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Washington, these four lone wolf killers will have to survive hit teams, and a national security obsessed with guarding its own secrets

You find yourself really caring what happens to the central characters of The Detachment, as they come face to face with treachery, power, and fraud. The devices and measures the characters use are convincing, the settings well researched, and the story chillingly credible.

The Detachment by Barry Eisler is a book you won’t want to put down.
