Barry Eisler



When the government offers a twenty-six-year-old former Marine a five-figure payday, there’s only one question: Who does he have to kill?

Welcome to the official website of author Barry Eisler

If you like edge-of-your seat action, exotic locations, realistic spycraft, steamy sex, and protagonists who are “the stuff great characters are made of” (Entertainment Weekly), you’ve come to the right place…

“Eisler combines the insouciance of Ian Fleming, the realistic detail of Tom Clancy, the ennui of Graham Greene, and the prose power of John le Carré.”

“No one is writing a better thriller series today than Barry Eisler. He has quickly jumped into my top-ten best American mystery/thriller writers, along with Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Walter Mosley, and Harlan Coben…Rating: A.”
Deadly Pleasures

“Written with a delightfully soft touch and a powerful blend of excitement, exotica, and what (ever since John le Carré) readers have known to call tradecraft.”
The Economist
