When I read this, I had no clue that it is second in the Conrad Yeats Adventure series. However, it has not much of a link with the first one, except that the first adventure is mentioned at few places in this book.
The adventure in this book is written about George Washington and Masonic background and some map which they left to be found in future.
I remember reading another book on similar background, so some of the historical stuff was not new for me.
Overall the fast pace and no-nonsense in this book makes it worth a read. I would like to read the first and the third book in this adventure also....more
This is the third book in The Clifton Chronicles series. The story continues from where it left off. I am highly impressed by the way the plot is taking the turn. The author is really a brilliant story teller. Also in this series there is a quite lot to learn about the British culture around the 2nd world war era. Harry Clifton and Emma Barrington are now getting older and Sebastian Clifton has started appearing in this book now.
The book ended at a very critical juncture and it will be interesting to read the next part to find out what happened to Sebastian and his friend Bruno....more

If I remember correct this is the second book in which Reacher travels outside the United States. But the first time he did was not using his own passport and then only a certain part was spend outside the US. In this story he travels to Paris and then to London and most of the plot is outside the US.
Its a bit different from other Jack Reacher series books. Its a little more descriptive than the previous books. In this book, Reacher needed lot of data from various places in order to get going. You can clearly see Reacher’s vulnerability outside the US.
However, overall Lee Child has done a very good attempt on taking the Reacher series in a different direction. This is not my favourite Reacher book, but its good.
