BARRY EISLER THE DETACHMENT PDF

That makes him an obvious person to help when his godson, Sweet Water High School student Matthew Crimstein, expresses concern to his grandmother, attorney Hester Crimstein, that his bullied classmate Naomi Pine has gone missing. But Hester, taking the time from her criminal defense of financial consultant Simon Greene Run Away, to worm the details out of him, asks Wilde to lend a hand, and sure enough, Wilde, unearthing an unsavory backstory that links Naomi to bullying classmate Crash Maynard, whose TV producer father, Dash Maynard, is close friends with reality TV star—turned—presidential hopeful Rusty Eggers, finds Naomi hale and hearty. And this time, so does Crash after a brief visit to Matthew in which he tearfully confesses his guilt about the bad stuff he did to Naomi. This second disappearance veers into more obviously criminal territory with the arrival of a ransom note that demands, not money, but the allegedly incriminating videotapes of Rusty Eggers that Dash and Delia Maynard have had squirreled away for 30 years.

Shelves: crime-fiction , thriller , barry-eisler , john-rain After a four-year absence, assassin John Rain returns in The Detachment. Of late, Rain has been living quietly under the radar in Tokyo, visiting his favorite jazz clubs, coffee shops and whiskey bars, but he remains ever-vigilant and one night, while training at his local daidojo, he notices two Americans who seem strangely out of place.

That someone turns out to be Col Scott Horton, head of a secret military group of covert killers, who convinces Rain to meet with him in L. Once there, Horton lays out a chilling scheme in which a group of plotters is planning a coup against the United States government.

Their plan is to make a series of "false flag" attacks against targets in the U. In the wake of these attacks, the president will suspend the Constitution and rule the country under special executive powers, dispensing with such inconvenient obstacles such as the Congress, courts and voters. The assumption is that, scared witless by the attacks, the American people will happily surrender what little remains of their liberties for the sake of their safety.

Horton wants Rain to lead a team that will assassinate the three principal coup plotters and thus head off the threat. What follows is a great thrill ride that is guaranteed to keep any reader awake well into the night and perhaps for a good long time thereafter.

In addition to being an excellent thriller, this is a very scary and thought-provoking book as well. Eisler has done a lot of research on rendition, secret prisons, government torture of suspected terrorists, and other such unpleasant topics, and has woven this into the story to create a very plausible scenario in which a plot like this might be nothing more than the next logical step, given the developments that have occurred in the U.

Inevitably, the book contains a lot of twists and turns and enough action to satisfy any fan of the genre. Eisler, who was once himself a covert op for the CIA, clearly knows his stuff.
