Jack Reacher is back.
 
The countdown has begun. Get ready for the most exciting 61 hours of your life. #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child’s latest thriller is a ticking time bomb of suspense that builds electric tension on every page.
 
Sixty-one hours. Not a minute to spare.

A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she’s going to live long enough to testify, she’ll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

Reacher’s original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed—but so is the woman whose life he’ll risk his own to save.
 
In 61 Hours, Lee Child has written a showdown thriller with an explosive ending that readers will talk about for a long time to come.

Perhaps it is a new style that is in vogue. Something called 'no-style'. When writing I spend 30 minutes trying to describe how the sun sets and here you read 'the sun sets.' It's a dry, staccato, transmission of data. Perhaps the dryness is a style.
At the end, one is rewarded with a punishment of no further information on the fate of the main character. Perhaps that is also a style. You read as the main character struggles to avoid impending doom and then...and then...you have an information dump as plastic as a programmed weather forecast. Things went boom and government agencies reacted. Your learn the fate of secondary characters but the main guy? Nothing.
