Rain Storm in Southern California
No, I'm not talking about the much needed rain to help cool us off and fend off any forest fires, but rather Barry Eisler's third volume about John Rain.
After reading a section of the book where Rain meets up with an equally impressive body guard, Eisler discussed the development of the book. Apparently much research goes into these books and other experts now gladly forward information to Barry to put into the stories. Not one to be without first hand knowledge, Barry travels to locations discussed in the book for research.
