    Rain fall by Barry Eisler (BeckyJG)
    BeckyJG: John Rain is a hero who is similar in many ways to Jack Reacher. A man of action and of few words, deep, lonely (even if he doesn't realize it). Rain is perhaps more morally ambiguous than Reacher; both kill without hesitation and little remorse, but Rain is, after all, an assassin, and gets paid to do so.… (more)

Had one of the best starts to a novel I have ever read. I love the way he figures things out and then just puts it out there like anyone else could have done it when no one else would have. I never watched MacGuyver, in fact I probably didn't even spell it right, but Jack Reacher is my literary MacGuyver. He can do anything! ( )

Another great book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. Reacher takes on Al Qaeda to protect the past of a congressman. ( )

This effort was reasonably entertaining as Reacher works go. A lot of bad guys were wasted in this NYC travelogue. Not sure I ever did understand what the two women terrorists were attempting to accomplish or why the government employee committed suicide? ( )

If you have seen my earlier reviews, then you know I am a Lee Child fan. Some of his Jack Reacher novels are better than others, and I found this story of dealing with terrorists in New York a very good page-turner. The reader does wonder how Reacher keeps finding himself in these crazy situations in which he faces corrupt or evil (or both) bad guys and instead of turning and moving on, decides it's his duty to see the issue to the end. Who wins? Well, there are several Reacher novels after this one! ( )

Jack Reacher thinks he has seen a suicide bomber on the New York subway. The choice he makes about how to act goes onto have far reaching consequences. What else can I say apart from it's a Jack Reacher book? It's a great story, well told. It doesn't aspire to be high brow literature, but it is clever and the plot is well executed. If you want a book you can plough through in a couple of days then look no further. ( )

The precise maneuvers... illustrate why Mr. Child is so good at what he does. But what is he doing? “Gone Tomorrow” has such a case of villain inflation that it involves itself in global geopolitics on the highest order. One step higher into the upper reaches of evildoing and Mr. Child could find himself on the moon.

First words
Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of telltale signs. Mostly because they're nervous. By definition they're all first-timers.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In this 13th Reacher novel, the former army MP confronts a possible suicide bomber on a nearly deserted Manhattan subway car -- a confrontation that will lead him back to the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and forward to the war on terrorism. It turns out that Susan Mark's life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, and Afghanistan ... from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate to a beautiful young woman with a story to tell, but can Reacher sort through their lies in time to save himself and help a woman police officer.… (more)
