Don't get me wrong, it was worth reading. But watch out for #8. And the bar stays raised in 9 thru 11. Definitely 4-star reads. I underestimated Child's wordsmithery before, his plots have become quite imaginative and his character can be brilliant at times. There are still a few suggestions I could make but I don't want to nitpick. I'd rather enjoy his work for what it is and for the considerable skills he brings to it. No way I could write stuff that entertaining.

However, there are a number of aspects of this novel that I am sure many readers will enjoy: it has loads of detail about different types of guns which will appeal to anyone who loves technical minutiae in their thrillers; the various locations are described in a very atmospheric way which makes it easy to imagine the settings where the various action scenes occur; and finally there is even a hint of romance for those of us who don't like our fictional heroes to be automatons.
So, for me, not the best Jack Reacher thriller I have read to date, but as I have already read a number that were written after this novel was published, it will not put me off reading more in the future.
First, a quick precis/primer about man-mountain Jack Reacher. He's a retired former military policeman who gets into excitement, as he travels about the US, rescuing people, and blowing things up.
In the book, Reacher is brought in to help defend the Vice President, because of course he was. Who wouldn't hire a long since retired policeman for the most important security detail of he life? Anyway, he's been recommended by someone close to him, and approaches the job with vigour and vim. The question is, can he and the secret services save the day?
The book itself wasn't a bad read. It just felt a bit posted in, or as if he was doing the novelistic equivalent of that.
