  • "Copying Jack Reacher a bit too much!"

    Overall

    As the title implies, Mr Child should be a bit miffed, as Mr Baldacci introduces a new character almost the twin of Jack Reacher. He is an army McGuyver, pretty much able to do anything and it called in to help a small town sheriff in W Virginia when a soon to be retired army man and his family are assassinated.

    The attention to detail is impressive and the feeling of a poor town, where nobody really cares is sad, as drugs, unemployment and illness due to the coal mining take its toll. However, it's a gripping story, and you're never sure whether the army or the mining company is the baddy; and unusually for an audiobook, there's background music and sound effects which actually add to the drama.

My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.
