The Chaos Kind, Today!

If you enjoyed the #1 bestselling The Killer Collective, you're going to love the follow-up, The Chaos Kind. It's the whole gang plus Marvin Manus, the Berserker-wielding assassin of The God's Eye View, along with a few new characters, too.

Kirkus calls it "Another high-fatality, high-spirited revenge fantasy." 

Publishers Weekly says, "Eisler juggles the complicated plot and large cast, imbuing his diverse characters with robust backstory and emotional motivation...Pure action seekers will gasp at the brutal violence and raw hand-to-hand combat."

I should add that it has its tender scenes, too... :)

I laughed and cried while writing it, and hope you will, too. Enjoy when you have a chance, and thanks for all your support over the years!




I'll be doing a Zoom launch with Kepler's Books at 6:00 pm, October 5th. Signup is here—and Kepler's is the place where you can order autographed paper copies.

I also want to mention the Legislative Drafting Institute for Child Protection—an organization that does work Livia Lone would be proud of, and that deserves your support. A particularly easy and effective way to support the LDICP is through AmazonSmile. It's simple to sign up and have Amazon donate 0.5 percent of your purchases to the LDICP (or other charity of your choice).

The assassins of Barry Eisler's #1 bestseller The Killer Collective are back—and this time, it's chaos.

Assistant US Attorney Alondra Diaz hates traffickers. And she's determined to put one of America's most powerful financiers, Andrew Schrader, in prison forever for his crimes against children.

But Schrader has videos implicating some of the most powerful members of the US national security state. To eliminate Diaz, the powers that be bring in a contractor: Marvin Manus, an implacable assassin whose skills have been forged in intelligence, the military, and the hardest prisons.

Enter former Marine sniper Dox and black-ops veteran Daniel Larison with an unusual assignment: not to kill Diaz, but to keep her alive.

A lot of players are determined to acquire the videos and the blackmail power they represent. But with Seattle sex-crimes detective Livia Lone, "natural causes" killer John Rain, and Mossad honey-trap specialist Delilah, the good guys might just have a chance.

They're not going to play by anyone else's rules. They're not going to play by any rules at all. They want a different kind of fight. The chaos kind.

I just finished an early Amazon read of this and I think it’s one of your best. I’m probably also gonna get the Audible version because you do such a great job narrating, especially for Dox. Keep it up!

Thanks for that Jack, glad you enjoyed it--and I love narrating Dox, too.

And if you have a moment, please don’t be shy about posting an Amazon customer review at the link below. For whatever reason, Thomas & Mercer seems not to have gotten out many review copies, so unlike previous books, Chaos is going to have to rely more on word of mouth.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

My first Barry Eisler read, The Chaos Kind, had me hooked, I couldn't put it down and look forward to reading more of your fabulous writing. Though I am not much of a movie goer, I can't help but think this would be great on the big screen. The characters really came to life.
