Who says a cold-blooded contract killer can't have a superego and complex feelings? Scott Brick's performance of Japanese-American John Rain, the assassin hero of Eisler's latest thriller, proves otherwise. Brick convinces listeners that Rain has had enough of murder for hire and just wants to settle down with his Mossad agent girlfriend. But when Rain's friend Dox is taken hostage by a rogue CIA agent, Brick dons the "iceman's" mantle as Rain coolly does what it takes to save Dox. Brick's pacing suits the supercharged tension of Eisler's convoluted double and triple crosses, making every incredible situation credible, every sadistic goon and megalomaniac plausible, and every love scene hot enough to melt your CDs.
