We Dont Talk about That - An Amazing Story of Surv&hellip by Giselle Roeder

It will appeal to fans of Lee Child and Stephen Leather. I have no doubt Gerald Griffin will further mould Ron Sheffield into a more rounded character as Jack Reacher also developed in subsequent books. Sheffield is clearly disturbed by his military highly specialised past and finds an outlet in acts of unrestrained professional violence in… Read more
