'Cunning, explosive . . . A thumping good read.' Time Out
Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere.
A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. Reacher offers her a steadying arm.
And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach.

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.
Very good well worth reading.
Not as good as book 1, but still great!
Good story, thoroughly enjoyed it. Why is it not 5/5? Some ways out of sticky situations are very ‘coincidental’ and Reacher’s military abilities can occasionally go from ‘action hero’ to absurdly unrealistic.
Die Trying - Lee Child
As always great read from start to finish.
