I went back to re-read these and after #1, grabbed A Lonely Resurrection as well. Rain has progressed into a new role. He’s the experienced assassin, killing a yakuza member for Tatsu. However after he does so, he realizes that he needs to eliminate one more and this one is harder.

As Rain goes undercover as a fighter, we are drawn into the steamy underworld of Tokyo and this is a rougher book than the first one. It’s an interesting one and with more suspense and action than the first one for me. The character is more mature, more careful and calculating, and perhaps more vulnerable.
