The Killer Collective
The Killer Collective | Barry Eisler
8 posts | 6 read | 4 to read
A fast-paced, page-turning novel of betrayal, vengeance, and depraved secrets in high places from the New York Times bestselling author of the John Rain and Livia Lone series. When a joint FBI-Seattle Police investigation of an international child pornography ring gets too close to certain powerful people, sex-crimes detective Livia Lone becomes the target of a hit that barely goes awry--a hit that had been offered to John Rain, a retired specialist in killings appearing to be from "natural causes." Suspecting that the FBI themselves were behind the attack, Livia reaches out to former marine sniper Dox. Together, they assemble an ad hoc team to identify and neutralize the threat: Rain; Rain's estranged lover, Mossad agent and honey-trap specialist Delilah; black op soldiers Ben Treven and Daniel Larison; and their former commander, SpecOps legend Colonel Scott "Hort" Horton. Moving from Japan to Seattle to DC to Paris, the group fights a series of interlocking conspiracies, each edging closer and closer to the highest levels of the US government. With uncertain loyalties, conflicting agendas, and smoldering romantic entanglements, this group is hardly a team. But in a match as uneven as this one, a collective of killers might be just what they need.

All in all, a great read, though I felt the ending was a bit too neat for most of the characters. I‘m happy with where Eisler leaves John, though, and I would be okay if this is the last John Rain book. I like the idea of him happy and living his life. 4 out of 5 stars.

...in that narrow, purgatorial space, a feeling crept in, a kind of mourning for my younger self and all his terrible choices, and a wish that I could somehow tell him what I knew now and help him for both our sakes to get it right, and a grief that such a thing was impossible, the young man‘s blindness irreparable, his mistakes immutable, the consequences irreversible.—Barry Eisler, The Killer Collective

It's too cold to go outside (-17 but feels like -36), so I'm snuggled in with an americano in my Litsy mug and my Kindle. Are you homebound because of the cold today too?

Relatively easy to read with multiple different view points. Full of suspense and hard to put down once reading. Could have been more character development but enjoyable for what it was

1. My kids and I are doing a cookbook challenge this year. So every time we make something, we‘re posting a picture to a shared album. This is Parmesan Chicken from Ina‘s cookbook.
2. I haven‘t bought an ebook yet, but the tagged book is this month‘s Amazon freebie.
3. 42
4. Not really
5. I don‘t think so.

Sooooo..... what have you selected for your two free Kindle firsts books this month? I‘m having a little trouble deciding. For some reason having two choices is making it harder! #kindlefirsts

Wonderwoman89 I have Prime but can‘t figure out how to get the free books. I looked all over my Prime page and can‘t find anything about it 13mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled @Wonderwoman89 I couldn‘t find it either and finally got an email from Amazon 🤷‍♀️ 13mo

ChristySevern @Wonderwoman89 If you're on a kindle, go to the "store" page and in the drop down contents there should be a link for "First Reads." Or on the amazon page, maybe search for "Kindle First Reads" and it should show up. Hope you find them! Already got my 2 books ? 13mo
