I discovered Lee Child through Paperback Swap, and I can't get enough of his books. Usually when you read several books by the same author they begin to blend into each other...not Lee Child. The endings are always a suprise. It is hard to put his books down! This book, Running Blind, is the third of his I have read and the best so far.
Think Bruce Willis and you have this fellow tagged! I really enjoy this author, but would personally like to be the proofreader for him! In the middle I would like to cut lots of wordy paragraphs, even though I like the rough and tumble, and tattered hero, fewer words in explantion would help him out!
I thought I had this one figured out several times, and was wrong wrong wrong! skillful snarl of details that mislead and puzzle until it all comes together. Brilliantly written with engaging characters and an amazing plot. Totally a page turner.
Every time I read a Jack Reacher novel I think "this one is the best." And they are all fabulous. But, honestly, I think this one is the winner - so far. It kept me guessing all the way through and I never, even remotely, guessed how it would end. I'm absolutely positive you'll love this book.
Never saw the ending coming. Women "drowned" in military-colored green paint with no other indication of cause of death. Reacher is "persuaded" to help find the killer; he also struggles with whether to stay in a relationship with Jodie, the one he truly connected to, or to move on in his oh-so-familiar nomadic ways.
