A good alternative to Jack Reacher novels (those written by Lee Child solely): engaging, good character development, well written, and excellent plot lines. I won't rehash the story in "The Man Who Stands Tall" but that it most certainly met my expectations and one of the few books that I read nearly straight through (okay I was under the weather so I had the time but still....)
It appears that Lauren Pauling, ex FBI agent, now private investigator has again been drawn into another case or rather incident because of her relationship to Jack Reacher. Her sister has been kidnapped. This is a fast moving thriller and time as in most kidnappings is critical. Enjoyable read!
I really liked it! I’ve read all of them in this series. Haven’t read the wade carver series but really liked him in this book so will read them next! Thanks for the great books you write, keep them coming!
I bought all this series at once and they are stored on a Kindle. i miss my library of books. Anyway i wound up reading the books out of order. Creates spoilers. i like this writer and this series of stories. based loosely on the Jack Reacher character Ames nonetheless carries off a good, fast paced mystery. Worth your time but read them in order if you can.
Another great book in this series featuring Lauren Paulson and Michael Tallon. Lauren's sister is kidnapped while on vacation and she and Michael take the case to recover her. I highly recommend this book.
