Funk Rating: 10 out 10
Reacher is back. His super-hero cape billows behind him as the reigning avenging angle of justice wreaks mayhem in a small Nebraska town.
Staccato writing, action verbs, partial sentences - the whole shebang is in fine form in this tautly written thriller that takes place in something like 48 hours. The underlying plotline is powerful and emotional - I can honestly say I found comfort in the fact Reacher put down the bad guys with extreme prejudice given their crimes.
When you want to escape into a book, pick up Child. He's close to his best with this one.
