Reading Report

The Hard Way by Lee Child

The Hard Way is Jack Reacher's tenth thriller. Not my favorite of the series, that distinction goes to Tripwire, but each adventure is worthy of not only reading but re-reading. Jack Reacher is the tough but vulnerable hero of the series. No problem figuring out who to root for or who's going to win. At the three quarter point I got worried that Mr. Child had become predictable, fortunately for me and the rest of his avid fans, I was mistaken.

For the romance writer's out there - why read a thriller? Pacing, suspense, elegant plotting, realistic action and dialogue and because a change of pace is good for everyone.
