At this point, if you are considering Lee Child's "Die Trying" then you have read one or more of the Jack Reacher series books before and you know what you are looking for. This book will not disappoint. Reacher and his minimalist approach to life and to other people's problems, which soon become his own, will be very familiar to you; and this book will take you to yet another situation that will challenge Reacher and entertain you along the way. The only problem you will find is at the end of the book... when you realize you have just finished another of a rather short list of titles from an author who is becoming one of your favorites and who isn't writing them as fast as you are reading them. Now what are you going to do?
This series is not my usual but it is a great one.
Jack Reacher is a great character and the author's descriptions put you right in the scene. Characters come to life and the action doesn't stop, and neither will you until you read them all. I am working on #10 and I haven't been disappointed yet.
While it's riddled with cliches and unlikely coincidences, they are _fun_ cliches and unlikely coincidences. I couldn't put the damned thing down!
Am just beginning to read this author. I picture Bruce Willis as the main character in all of these books. Even though the main character's name is the same unlike others each book stands on it's own and I like that. Males book more than females, but I really enjoyed it.
If you like the Jack Reacher character, you'll love him in this book. Classic Reacher.
