I Like This Better Than Newer Reacher Books
August 16, 2018
Warning: the character Jack Reacher appears only in name and reminisces.
This short but fast-paced and action-oriented book has two powerful protagonists—Michael Tallon and Lauren Pauling—who move the complex storyline through the many twists to the denouement. I’m a big mystery/suspense fan who loves figuring out plot direction. We know the WHOdunnit but the how, what, why and where are what keeps this book moving.
The main characters, plus the antagonists and many secondary characters, are well developed with personality quirks that make them interesting.
NOTE for the faint-hearted: There are many murders, so expect descriptions of blood, gore, killing and maiming throughout this book.
Some profanity is inevitable in this type of book, but I can’t recall the big F or characters taking names in vain.
