Barry Eisler returns to Kepler's! Join us as we toast the ninth novel in the John Rain series, Zero Sum.

Set in Tokyo in 1982, a young John Rain must make the hardest choice of his career. Upon returning to the city he knows so well, Rain meets the man in charge of the killing business, a half-Russian, half-Japanese sociopath named Victor. He must assassinate a government minister, but not before discovering the mystery behind the official's beautiful Italian wife.

Ensnared in a truly zero-sum game, not only is Rain's reputation on the line, his life may be as well.

Promising to be one of the best Rain novels yet, "Zero Sum" is a full-throttle thriller from one of the best mystery writers in the country. Eisler is the author of over a dozen novels, many of which have been translated into a number of different languages. He is the winner of the Barry Award and Gumshoe Award.
