4.0 out of 5 stars a look into the past, 24 Jun 2013
quite simply, a good read; I became interested, very early, in the characters, and the style of writing pleased me

3.0 out of 5 stars TOO MUCH PADDING, 6 Oct 2011
I have been reading the Reacher series right from the beginning. Like other reviewers, I find he is getting sloppy, it seems as though his computer has set situations where the press of a key will bring out x 100 words. The sex scenes are Mills and Boon stuff.
Pity, he had the best story line for quite a while, but did not take advantage of it

5.0 out of 5 stars Editor Required, 1 Aug 2011
As a political junky, and one who regarded Mandelson as a follower of the much (and often wrongly) maligned Machiavelli, I was looking forward to reading this book; have tried on four or five separate occasion to do so, but find it so appallingly badly written that, on each occasion, I have given up.

Mandelson has a huge story to tell, can one hope that he has the time to sit down with a professional writer and start again?
