Persuader (2008)

I would have to rank this as one of my favourite Lee Child books, even if I thoughs the start was dubious. For the first chapter or two, I worried this might even be a Reacher novel of a standard to rival the disaster that was Nothing to Lose. Then, of course, we got a little farther into the boo...

Without Fail (2002)

While reading this installment of the Jack Reacher series, I remarked to my fiancee that this just might be the best one so far. She lauhed at me, and chided that I have said that for every one that I have read so far. She's right. I probably have.But, to me, that's the beauty of this series. It'...

After collecting each and every Jack Reacher books tirelessly over the years one by one from the mountainous book piles of used bookstores, and after always hearing this or that about the all powerful Jack Reacher, yesterday I finally finished reading this first book from Lee Child. Was it worth ...

Running Blind (2001)

2 ½ stars. Long, drawn out process investigating murders. Not enough action. The ending was frustrating.REVIEWER’S OPINION:The story starts off in an exciting way with thugs demanding payoffs from a new restaurant owner. Reacher likes the restaurant and takes action. That was fun. But after...

The Enemy (2005)

Lee Child's Jack Reacher series continues. This is a series of thrillers about an action hero -- Reacher. When Child is good, the books are, well, thrilling, and the hero, Jack Reacher, engages in a lot of action. This is usually the case.Unfortunately, in some books, such as "Echo Burning" (M...

Bad Luck and Trouble (2007)

Eleventh in the Jack Reacher suspense series. This one takes place in L.A.My TakeOh. This is such a sad one. So many losses.I found it interesting that Child is allowing Jack to age and start to question what he's doing. This makes it so real. I've been wondering if/when Jack might start to wonde...

A Wanted Man (2012)

A good, not great continuation of the Jack Reacher series. I know the whole purpose of these books are Jack Reacher against the world, but I thought this one slowed down when he got out of the car with the hostage. Every thing seemed to perfectly align even more so than normal. I mean there ar...

61 Hours (2010)

This book can be read without having read any of the other jack reacher books. I rated a four because I found the book to be slightly drawn out and slow paced. The ending was thrilling but inconclusive, it left me hanging wondering what had really happened (don't want to give too much away!). I d...
