So Powerful! So much information that the ordinary citizen was never told. So many mistakes in the building of the towers and in the lack of excape routes. A few unbelievable items of interest: the doors to the roof were locked so that the helicopters hovering above found no one to rescue; the fire department and the police department disliked each other and did not communicate during the disaster; the building code was not followed when the towers were built to allow more room for billable office space. And so on. Very personal; very heart-rending.
Planning a heist? For one, the motive is revenge; for the other, it is for the thrill. The victims ? The arrogant, deadly stuffed shirts of an empire founded on money laundering, greed, and a hidden deadly crime. Who will succeed? Great involving mystery. Characters you will learn to love or to despise. Fascinating read.
Don't think this book is going to be like the movie. It is much more complicated with two stores interwoven which makes it hard to follow at times. This said however the story is exciting, imaginative and will raise goose-bumps on your arms. A chilling look into what might be in our future. Expect to be frightened. Good one.
Another fabulous Jack Reacher novel. May be my favorite of the bunch. The novel starts out with a "bang" then slows down a bit in the middle as the hours are counted off and things get a little repetitive. But the ending more than makes up for that. Wow! Happy reading - great book.
A very satisfying read. Typical Patterson with a lot of mystery, police work, terrific characters and a touch of romance. What more could you ask for? Short chapters, great dialogue and can't-put-it-down excitement. Enjoy!
This was one of the most exciting books I've read in a long time. The story switches in time between the events of 1893 and 2009 - equally horrifying and gripping - definitely interrelated.. The characters are well drawn; the location/weather is an equal partner in the tale. I defy you to put this book down for long. It will haunt you and call you back until you've gotten to the very end. Wow! Enjoy.
Complex mystery full of characters you will end up caring about. A corrupt town, the FBI, a family looking for answers - all come together in a story that is compelling to the very end. A very good tale.
I loved this audio book! Three heros; three villians - who will survive this battle?
Fascinating characters, fast pacing, great plot. I wasn't sure until the very end what the outcome would be. Well read. You will enjoy.
I've been reading this book non-stop whenever time allowed. It is terrific. It is ageless. It is terrifying. Hard to believe it was written in the 1950's. Wonderful. Wonderful! As you can tell, I just loved this book.
