This book was brilliant. I couldn’t put it down. The action was there right from the beginning and didn’t let up throughout the whole story. The plot was fast paced, which made it a real page turner. The main character is one of those people that you can’t help but like, despite the fact that he’s a killer. The characterisation of Reacher is in-depth and gives the book real integrity. Having read Killing Floor - which introduced Jack Reacher - but nothing in between, I liked how the character has developed between the two books.

I liked the length of the chapters. They were relatively short, which meant that each part of the book could be digested in smaller chunks and it made it easier to come back to after a break. There were a couple of twists in the book that kept my interest, and I thought they added to the plot – sometimes twists can seem contrived, but not in this case. I liked the plot subject - I can't actually say anything about it, as that would give away details, but suffice to say it's very relevant and I liked Child's take on it.

A great book, definitely one I’d recommend to fans of fast-paced thrillers. I’ve only read one other Lee Child book (and enjoyed that one too as it happens), but I’ll definitely be reading the previous books in this series.
