***1/2

Interesting starting point with a somewhat 'cheap' cliff hanger that announces the sequel. I'm definitely going to read the second book in the series. The author has the narrative right, but it's clear his penmanship needs some finetuning. Very

A bit too drawn out maybe, but with good structure and lots of returning elements. Jack reacher is most definitely (becoming) a format.

Ge gaat dat graag lezen, had iemand mij geschreven, nog voor het boek gepubliceerd was. En dus heb ik het maar meteen gekocht de dag waarop het uitkwam. Ik heb nogal een moeilijke verhouding met Nederlandstalige auteurs --het schijnt dat zij ofwel in ...more
