This was written before Lee Child's "Never go back" and is an outstanding example of Child's technique. There is action from the very beginning. The ending is very unusual. The 61 hour thing is gets a little repetitious as the story goes along and has little to do with the plot of the book. Maybe the author was desperate for a book title. A must read for Jack Reacher fans.

Clearly this is one of Lee Child's best books dealing with events while he is still in the military. There is an affair with the local female sheriff. Jack Reacher must deal with political and military corruption is his own unorthodox manner. Character development at it's best.

It is rare treat to read a novel of this superb rank. The subject of missing children is certainly not one would normally select. Not for the faint of heart, but this book is a real eye opener.

Although slow is some places, it is an incredible mystery. The subject matter is not for everyone including a "snuff film". There are lots of twists and turns and the subject of alcohol abuse recovery.

Another great book with Jesse Stone in Paradise. Parker maintains the zippy dialog from start to finish. I had to read one section to my friends. Jesse's 'on and off' romantic relationship is getting trying.

Not quite up to Lee Child's normal standards. Little bit harder to follow the character's by name and function. Lots of twists and turns in typical Child fashion.

Enjoyed the humor. The switch of character names were a bit confusing at times, but eventually it became clear. The bad guy was not easy to identify until the end, but who cares.

Parker introduces a new character in the form of Sunny Randall, private eye. The first chapter is Sunny's background that is quite complete. Parker's funny writing style does not return until mid-book. Then the fun begins.

This book is not quite up to Coben's normal writing. It has a great final few chapters, but there is a lot of foot dragging in the middle. Easy to speed read and not lose the plot and it's details.

Very informative about the 1940's in the Hot Springs, Arkansas era. Social attitudes as well the life styles of that time. Lots of action with just a few areas requiring speed reading. One of the best mysteries I have ever read.

I liked this book. Again the author's sense of humor is just a little bit off, but not distracting. Character development is great and the workings of the mob mind is interesting. Quite a bit of violence.

Ready for a wild ride with humor mixed in? Try Elvis Cole and his sidekick Joe Pike for an adventurous mystery.

This is my first Jance book and it was kind of slow in places due to too much detail for me. The plot picked up in the last few chapters for an exciting climax. Will try another one more Jance novel to see if the writing improves.

Another outstanding adventure/mystery of Jack Reacher by Lee Child. There is a side story that is woven into the main story with great skill. Not for the faint of heart.

The subject matter is quite erotic and not for everyone. There is a lot of unnecessary detail that allows the book to lag in places. Otherwise, the book would have a four star rating. The humor is delightful and the last chapter is a real highpoint of the book.

This is her best work to date. I am a big fan of Tess and have read most of her books. This is not her normal subject matter and addresses a major problem worldwide.
