I’ve got a quick, but significant announcement: I’ve just published my newest release, The B-Team, a Kindle Worlds-commissioned novel set in Barry Eisler’s world of the lethal half-Japanese, half-American assassin, John Rain, available right now for just $3.99 on Amazon.
This is a departure for me from the Marty Singer novels, but definitely a labor of love. I’ve been a fan of Barry’s work since the early 2000’s when he introduced the world to John Rain and have had a life-long fascination with Japanese culture that trips to Kyoto (2007) and Tokyo (2015) only fueled further.
Here’s the background:
With his long and bitter history involving the yakuza, John Rain isn’t one to shy away from a contract that gives him the chance to eliminate the leader of one of its largest clans.
But when the job takes him from the familiar streets of Tokyo to the ancient capital of Kyoto, he finds himself on uncertain footing. The city itself is full of painful memories, while his mission seems to be compromised from the start when a rival clan seems to be just as intent as he is to reach the target. The only help he can turn to is the beautiful but enigmatic and lethal Yume Sasaki…if he can afford to trust her.
As the bonfires of the city’s oldest religious festival rage on, ghosts from his past and enemies from his present close in with not just the contract, but Rain’s own survival, at stake.
The B-Team, available now for just $3.99. If you read it, I’d welcome reviews of it on Amazon or any other readers’ site you visit to let me know what you thought.
p.s. If you’re curious, I explain in another post what Kindle Worlds is and why I decided to write in someone else’s universe.
