Read in August, 2009

Reacher is contacted by his dead brothers ex girlfriend who is now a proectore of the vice president in the secret service.

Handy if you are a thriller writer for your characters to have these sort of contacts.

The vice president is being threatened and the only person that can help is someone outside the organisation..... who better for you to call on than a man you have never met who was nearly part of the family.

If you think it sounds stupid now, wait until you find out who is threatening the vice president and why!

You know what you are getting from Mr Child - he has formed a hugely lucrative career out of writing the same book every year. And who can forgive the "men want to be him, women want to bed him" line on the cover.

The quality of the books vary based on the social theme being investigated - sometimes like the missing vets and religious sects, it is great - other times, like here - its so preposterous that credibility goes.

Will persevere with the series on my next holiday.

Dubes well said. It was my first Reacher book. Not bad but not good.
