That blissful, satisfied sigh you hear is me. I devoured Gone Tomorrow in less than a day, all 421 pages. No, it isnt deathless prose, not even for an action thriller, but it is what Lee Child and his protagonist Jack Reacher do best - slam into you at full tilt from the opening lines while you hang on for a thrill ride.

Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of telltale signs. Mostly because theyre nervous. By definition theyre all first timers.

Jack Reacher is on the Lexington Avenue local at 2AM and remembering all the training he had by Israeli counterintelligence and watching a woman that fits the profile perfectly. Shes wearing a bulky oversized parka on a hot fall day and its zipped to the neck. She keeps muttering, as if reciting a prayer, her hands hidden in a small backpack on her lap wrapped around something hard like the battery and detonator switch. But surely its the wrong time not enough people, but it was impossible for Reacher to ignore. He figures hes as dead where he sits as he will be closer, so he approaches. Trying to calm her, he says hes a cop. Instead, she pulls out a gun and kills herself with a .357 Magnum through her head.

Coffee with Jacob Mark, the brother of Susan Mark, the suicide victim and himself a cop in Jersey, has Reacher doing a combination soul searching and counseling a bereaved family member. Jacob keeps saying Susan had no reason for such an act. He is utterly convinced that, despite their distant relationship, his sister was a happy woman and not at all someone who would kill herself. At least Reacher learns how she was identified so quickly, she worked at the Pentagon. Was that why feds probably DoD - showed up? Did she take something from the Pentagon?

But whats really driving Reacher is the small chance that by telling the woman he was a cop, he was responsible for pushing her over the edge. The anguish and bewilderment of her brother hits Reacher hard where he is most venerable, in his conscience.

The book has its failing - including Reacher's bizarre lapse in geography and sudden ineptitude with cell phones, but he's back in kick-ass form after 3 weak entries in a row. A solid action thriller. You can find a complete review on my blog.

Jack Reacher still keeps me up nights. This one was not up to par with some of the earlier ones but still will look forward to the next one.

Starts strong. Ends weak. Reacher is fun. Plot is as bad as these sentences.

I still say that Jack Reacher needs to get his own car.

From the first page to the last, this book will take you on a suspenseful thriller of a ride. I haven't enjoyed a book so much in quite a long time. Even after 543 pages I wanted more!

Another solid entry in the Reacher series from Child. This one really kept the pages turning. Reacher gets involved with a terrorist cell after he witnesses a suicide on a New York subway train. He falls into a web of lies involving an ex-Delta force soldier who is trying to get a Senate seat, a beautiful Ukrainian who is not who she seems, Federal agents and New York police officers. And along the way even Osama Bin Laden plays a role in the story. Another high recommendation for this one!

As with all of Lee Child's Jack Reacher stories, this one sucks you right in. If you're a Reacher fan you're going to enjoy this. I don't want to give anything away so this is all I'm going to tell you about it! You won't be disappointed.
