Good thriller; but not Lee Child's best,
This review is from: Persuader: (Jack Reacher 7) (Paperback)
Lee Child writes excellent thriller, and his lonesome tough guy hero Reacher is a splendid creation. In this book, Reacher has to penetrate a mysterious house on a walled-off promontory and win the trust of a houseful of muscular and well-armed tough guys in order to solve a mystery and rescue a damsel in distress. The narrative is solid and enjoyable throughout and there's a reasonable climax, so well worth four stars.
Downside: I found the central mystery disappointingly small-scale: in these days of global terror, it would be good to see Reacher directed against some bigger targets.
