John Rain, el hombre que mata a cambio de dinero pero mantiene unas rgidas normas que le impiden aceptar segn qu encargos, se ha retirado a Osaka para esperar a que amainen las consecuencias de sus ltimos trabajos. Sin embargo, pronto sera llamado de regreso a Tokio para que se encargue de una nueva vctima: un mafioso contrario a los intereses de los amigos de Rain. Como siempre, tendr que parecer un accidente. Sin embargo, la muerte de este primer mafioso no hace sino despertar un reguero de plvora en las amplsimas redes de la corrupcin econmica y poltica de Japn. En contra de su intancin, Rain no podr retirarse y olvidarse de su trabajo durante un tiempo, sino que deber seguir haciendo lo que ha hecho desde que termin la guerra de Vietnam: matar, matar por encargo, y tratar al mismo tiempo de salvar su cada vez ms amenazado entorno. Todo ello mientras le seguimos por prostbulos, los clubes de jazz y los bares de Tokio en un deseperado periplo.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sicario (Hard Rain)?

It's in Spanish! The original in English is excellent.   Mar 7, 2008
I like the English version of the book. No one told me this one was in Spanish. If you are a Spanish reader, you'd enjoy John Rain's adventure. Very insightful about real Japan, too. Almost all the places in the book actually exists in Japan -- so you can go check it out when you go visit. Rating I gave it 3 because -- it's in Spanish and I could not read in Spanish.
Spanish  Mar 21, 2007
To the folks that don't know this is a translation into spanish: READ!

Product Details:

Hardcover: 400 pages
Publisher: Roca Editorial; Translatio edition (April 30, 2005)
**********Language: Spanish******************

And the title "Scario": is that English, I think not. Pay attention!

They let these people vote? Unreal. . .

As far as the book is concerned, it's just another in a line-up of gimpy suspense/mystery who-done-it from a pop writer who would be better suited to writing for Law and Order SVU or another one of those cookie-cutter TV police dramas.

Not worth the money in Spanish or English, but I gave it 5 stars just to even out the two idiots who gave it 1 star based on it's translated LANGUAGE.
No hable espanol  Jan 21, 2007
Love the John Rain series. This particular book is in spanish. Did I mention that I don't speak or read spanish?
I Wish I Could Have Read It  Nov 2, 2006
If there was any mention in your description of this book of the fact that it is printed in the Spanish language, I failed to note it. Since I am unable to read Spanish, I returned the book for a refund.
