Barry Eisler’s New Blog

Barry Eisler is one of my favorite mental floss writers.  Barry writes thrillers about a bad-ass named John Rain.  Rain is half-Japanese, half American assassin who specializes in making his kills look like natural causes.  Oh – and he’s good with the women.

His books, in order, are Rain Fall, Hard Rain, Rain Storm, Killing Rain, and (in June) The Last Assassin,  Now, Barry has a blog called The Heart of The Matter.  I no longer will have to wait a year to read the next batch of his prose.
