Overview: All Jack wants to do is head for Virginia. Was that too much to ask? Apparently so, because he was picked up by a group of three similarly dressed individuals. Coincidently, there was a violent murder not too far away. Well, Virginia can wait for a bit. As it is, Jack does enjoy a good puzzle. But, will his traveling companions agree with his sentiments?
Story Telling: We have another thriller from Mr. Child.
Dislikes: It’s what the FBI did to Sheriff Victor Goodman. That was so wrong. One could even call it evil. But, what else do you expect from those who no longer are concerned with supporting our Constitution?
Also, it appears as if Mr. Child decided to push his beliefs about what happens at the time of death. In my opinion, if your story isn’t about ghosts or the afterlife, leave the transpiring at the time of death from another’s point-of-view.
Likes: Reacher did not quit when Karen needed his help.
And Victor Goodman is one of the good ole boy sheriffs with a fascination with note-taking.
Julia Sorenson does have a healthy suspicion of all of those involved with or in her cases.
Favorite Character: Victor Goodman was the best guy in the whole book.
Favorite Quote: When referring to Sheriff Goodman: “He was a nice man. A good man, like his name.”
Favorite Scene: It was when Victor went looking for the eye-witness’s truck.
Conclusion: This is an okay book. While it’s an entertaining read, you need to really like Jack by the time you get to this addition to the series.
