An Amazon Charts, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal bestseller. 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 “natural causes.” Suspecting the FBI itself was behind the attack, Livia reaches out to former Marine sniper Dox. Together, they assemble an ad hoc group to identify and neutralize the threat. There’s Rain. Rain’s estranged lover, Mossad agent and honeytrap specialist Delilah. And black ops soldiers Ben Treven and Daniel Larison, along with their former commander, SpecOps legend Colonel Scot “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, these operators will have a hard time forming a team. But in a match as uneven as this one, a collective of killers might be even better.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The fun of Eisler’s super thriller is in the excitement, the chase, and the survival. The Killer Collective binds it together into a blazing adventure of espionage escape fiction.” New York Journal of Books
“Riveting…Barry Eisler pulls off an Avengers-like feat.” Mercury News
“As usual with an Eisler novel, the plot is full of twists, the prose is muscular, and the action unfolds at a torrid pace. The result is another page-turner from one of the better thriller writers since James Grady published Six Days of the Condor in 1974.” Associated Press
“Impossibly cool.” Entertainment Weekly
“He’s done it again—narrator Barry Eisler has reprised his impressive author/narrator double role for a superbly delivered audiobook. This thriller continues with the professional killers from the preceding books, but even listeners new to the series will relish the personalities and plot twists. As the assassins form an unlikely team to eradicate a child pornography ring, Eisler capably distinguishes their voices. John Rain is persuaded to come out of retirement in a remote Japanese village, and Eisler’s depiction reflects Rain’s Asian introspection. Livia Lone, a Seattle detective with a secret vigilante double identity, has a slightly feminine quality without sounding delicate. Eisler presents ex-Marine Dox with a slightly over-the-top Texas twang. Best of all, the action scenes are fast paced and intense. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“[A] crackling good thriller…This is delightfully brutal fun.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
