|Powerful writing, excellent plot, nice gradual reveal of the crime that was committed 25 years ago and its residual impact on the present. Some scenes are among the most intense but realistic scenes I've ever read. The only flaw I noticed is Child seemed a little self-indulgent with certain scenes, using far more words than he needed to convey the essence of that scene, but his writing is so excellent and so entertaining I didn't mind that for example, he used many hundreds of words to describe a fight that only took a few seconds.|
Jack Reacher is an impressive protagonist. The kind of guy you don't want to cross, but if he's on your side, you couldn't ask for a better ally.
