APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lee Child’s second Jack Reacher novel wastes no time in igniting its plot, with the hulking antihero snatched from a downtown Chicago sidewalk in broad daylight. Suddenly Reacher is fighting for his survival when he’s mistaken for the ringleader in the kidnapping of federal agent Holly Johnson. Child’s no-nonsense writing style delivers white-knuckle thrills. This bracing thriller takes us inside the FBI, the Waco-style Montana Militia and even the White House. Die Trying makes it easy to see why Reacher has become one of fiction’s most indelible leads.
Some great moments in this story that really made me want to not put it down at times.
Simple plot well executed as you’d expect from Lee Child. Does exactly what’s intended. Entertains.
Quick and easy...
This was a quick and easy read which lets your imagination run away with the circumstance. How can one guy have such bad luck? Yet how can one guy be so lucky at the same time? Fiction! Yes, the realm of possibility is pushed, but I'm not reading this book for any purpose other than entertainment and it delivered. Another great Reacher story that was hard to put down.
So far I’m reading Reacher in order. Hooked from the first one. Really enjoyed the ride in this one. Had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next and how it was going to all pan out. Highly recommend
