"A crackling-good thriller...The feisty interplay among these killer elites is as irresistible as if one combined the Justice League with the Avengers, swapping out the superhero uniforms for cutting-edge weaponry and scintillating spycraft...Delightfully brutal fun."
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Vicarious pleasure for anyone wanting to see the scum of the world get its due."
—Kirkus Reviews

"Somewhere between John Wick and Jason Bourne, Rain is a force to be reckoned with, and Livia Lone shines as well...a smorgasbord of unique, compelling characters, and Eisler expertly juggles their personalities...a fun, fast-paced thriller that's tailor-made for fans of nonstop action."
—The Real Book Spy

"In the midst of explosions of all sorts, Eisler's two unusual protagonists tangle with matters of the heart...The Killer Collective binds it together into a blazing adventure of espionage escape fiction, perfect to start the new year."
—New York Journal of Books

"The Killer Collective packs a punch like a sniper's rifle. A solid grounding in up-to-the-minute technology and current affairs makes this a hot read for thriller lovers."
—AuthorLink Writers & Readers Magazine

"A heart-pounding home run...Eisler has created a more literary version of The Expendables—the movie series that brought together Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis, and other action heroes..."
—It's Either Sadness or Euphoria

"A great pick for fans of fast-paced thriller novels...the writing is crisp and the story flows seamlessly..."
—Mystery Tribune

" adrenaline-fueled marathon of action and conspiracy from beginning to end, filled with plenty of combat and movie screen-ready violence that's more satisfying than ten of Hollywood's biggest summer blockbusters..."

"The best Eisler thriller in years"
—Best Thrillers

"Riveting...The Killer Collective is an 'Avengers'-like feat..."
—Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News

"As usual with an Eisler novel, the plot is full of twists, the prose is muscular and the action unfolds at a torrid pace. The result is another page turner from one of the better thriller writers since James Grady published "Six Days of the Condor" in 1974."
—Bruce DeSilva, Star Tribune

"Eisler deals with vile crimes with fantastic police work, well-seasoned professionals, and his own considerable skill and talent as a writer. You will walk away stunned by this 'Killer Collective.'"
—Suspense Magazine

"There's such an array of good guys—and gals—in The Killer Collective that the group resembles a gathering of Marvel heroes. While no one flies, throws a shield, or swings a mjolnir, they do possess super powers on a human scale...There's a history among the members of these talented team and their interactions are, at times, humorous, and at others, quite touching."
—Woman Around Town

"Demonstrating extraordinary expertise in the art of espionage, special operations, and martial arts, which his fans and fellow practitioners have come to venerate, Eisler delivers another brilliant, fast paced thriller."
—Daniel Hoffman, CIA, retired, The Cipher Brief

More praise

When a joint FBI—Seattle Police investigation of an international child pornography ring gets too close to certain powerful people, sex-crimes detective Livia Lone becomes the target of a hit that barely goes awry—a hit that had been offered to John Rain, a retired specialist in "natural causes."

Suspecting the FBI itself was behind the attack, Livia reaches out to former Marine sniper Dox. Together, they assemble an ad hoc group to identify and neutralize the threat. There's Rain. Rain's estranged lover, Mossad agent and honeytrap specialist Delilah. And black ops soldiers Ben Treven and Daniel Larison, along with their former commander, SpecOps legend Colonel Scot "Hort" Horton.

Moving from Japan to Seattle to DC to Paris, the group fights a series of interlocking conspiracies, each edging closer and closer to the highest levels of the US government.

With uncertain loyalties, conflicting agendas, and smoldering romantic entanglements, these operators will have a hard time forming a team. But in a match as uneven as this one, a collective of killers might be even better.
