A glitch in the sequence of brilliance !!
on 28 May 2013
This is the sixth book in the "Jack Reacher" series that I've read and unfortunately , for me at least , the worst. I don't mean it's terrible it's just not up the usual high standard, At the start it's gripping with the threat of a possible assassination attempt on the nominated Vice-President but towards the end the reason for that attempted outrage is explained and you had no way of predicting that explanation also Jack seems to have lost some of his invincibilty and perception in this episode . In the previous books when you had the "reveal" there was , at least , the possibility of back tracking to find the hidden clues. It's a pity there wasn't that luxury in this case, that said it's still a good read but not his best, I hope when book 7 arrives it'll be more satisfying than this one. So, to sum up , in the words of my old school teacher "could do better" !!!
