This one takes place right after the last one. Rain has traveled to Manila, and he’s recovered. Dox is with him and they are working for the Mossad to take out an arms dealer. However Rain’s brush with death, he hesitates and manages to botch the job, kill the bodyguard and two CIA employees, all while saving Dox’ life.

They flee to Hong Kong, worried about both the Mossad and CIA. They should be. The Mossad is concerned about blowback from the CIA and plans to kill them, sending Delilah and Gil to get them. Meanwhile there’s CIA blowback as we learn that Hilger (from the last book), works with them.

We slowly see things untangle, and we find Rain working to figure things out (that we know as readers), while trying to stay alive. At the end, there’s a long, exciting chase as all the people come together. A great read.
