About this deal

At a meeting with the fbi the woman is an agent who is known for her prompt timing, but not today and this has her team worried when she doesn't show. The first half was good, but as we discover our main antagonists and what's happening (which was a big Meh for me), the middle part really dragged. Plus, all the details of the bullets as they're moving/shooting and Reacher's ability to keep accurate time over a long time in his head is too much. The decision had cost him ten thousand dollars a year in income, but it had bought him back his sanity, and it had bought him undying respect and blind affection from the agents he worked with.

I very much appreciated that the female character featuring in this story (Holly) was a strong, brave, intelligent woman, totally badass in her own right.

On the way, Reacher learns the woman is an FBI agent named Holly Johnson (although she doesn't tell him she's the daughter of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff nor goddaughter of the President). By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

In this novel you'll learn about the madness of a cult (had to think about Waco, it was even mentioned in the book) and how difficult it is to overcome mad schemers like Beau Borken. Here the plot is rather weak and as always there's a certain implausibility about Reacher altogether. The bar of shadow was lying to the left of the third chair in the row, and he knew it would inch toward the head of the table as time passed. I gave up when I realised I didn't really care enough about any of it - the characters, the plot, the impending climax where, as in a James Bond movie, everyone will get what they deserve. The sort of instinctive sound an earnest, naive citizen makes when something should not be happening.Reacher, of course, is there to provide it, and he and Holly together will have to struggle mightily both to defend Holly's virtue and to prevent the militiamen from accomplishing their objectives. He’s got no idea what’s happening, but being more than a pretty face, he quickly figures out all kinds of things about her, her identity, and about the men. And would they really want to 'make out' right next to the grave of the guy they just buried – especially as she keeps professing her love for some other chap we don't know about. The leader was twisted around in the front seat with his gun hand resting against the thick leather headrest.

There’s also a sex scene that induces enough eye rolling to cause the reader to make an appointment with their optometrist. There’s also plenty of writing surrounding marksmanship and Child does some nifty work describing the ballistics in a technical fashion that is fun to read.ovo je bilo toliko plitko, naivno, predvidljivo, razvučeno, sa kvalitetom pisanja ispod proseka i sa jako iritantnim glavnim likom da sam u više navrata htela da odustanem iako to nikada ne radim. Believe it or not a big chunk of the credit goes to Cruise who managed to convey the cocky arrogance needed while making it entertaining instead of over the top.
