Liked this one - but the bad guy was SOOO bad. And there was no closure on the Chester and Marilyn Stone part of the story - I wanted to know how they ended up. ( )

Child gets real talky towards the end but this is a good one. Its much batter than the previous installment "Die Trying". ( )

I do love the Reacher character, but this was not my favorite. I just didn't think enough happened in this book. I am all for character development, but the plot just didn't really advance. I read these kinds of books for action and plot twists . . .this one was a little disappointing. ( )

good reacher a crazy guy kidnaps several people and likes to kill people. Reacher as usual is involved for no particular reason but he's of course the one who saves the day. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0515143073, Mass Market Paperback)

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is lying low in Key West, digging up swimming pools by hand. He is not at all pleased when a private detective starts asking questions about him. But when the detective, Costello, turns up dead with his fingertips sliced off, Reacher realizes it is time to move on.

As in Lee Child's two previous thrillers, Die Trying and Killing Floor, Reacher is soon up to his neck in lethal trouble, this time involving a vicious Wall Street manipulator, a mysterious woman (of course), and the livelihood of a whole community. Even the fate of soldiers missing in action in Vietnam is stirred into the brew.

But this is not a book by one of the new breed of U.S. thriller writers. Child prides himself on his ability, as an Englishman, to write American thrillers that are utterly convincing in milieu and toughness of action, without a trace of English sensibility. Tripwire is no exception. Every bit as lean and compulsive as its predecessors, it also builds on the freshest aspect of those books: Reacher may be a tough, epic hero, but he always remains human and vulnerable. --Barry Forshaw
