Grr, i'm still having problems with the ISBN search - I know this because this is the second copy of this book to pass through my hands. So no cover picture.

(25/08/19) Although all (most of) the usual features were present and correct, this felt vaguely less Reacher-like than usual ... although i'm picking hairs, it was still a cracking read!

A lot of the action is set in Paris and London, particularly unattractive bits of West and East London. Lee Child explained in too much detail, I guess for the US and other readers, about road names, terminology, and cultural norms. When did an American author ever do this for his homeland!

The whole fight in the shed and bowling green with 'Big Joey', and indeed the conclusion with the rogue 'personal' sniper were very flat and unrealistic IMHO.

And last, and probably least, JR didn't end up with the 'girl' (the unlikely named Casey Nice). Is Jack growing up into a different softer PC version of himself for the C21st. Let's hope not! I'm looking forward to no.20 already ;)

As usual this is going on the sharing bookshelf in our Airbnb, to replace stocks depleted by a charity book stall.

If you find this welcome to Jack Reacher (although don't start with this one!) and to book crossing.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
