Die Trying

Haven't read it yet, but I enjoyed the first one quite a bit so I'm assuming this will be another 5 star read.

Jack Reacher Esseential Background

Became interested after the movie this past Christmas (Tom Cruse as Jack Reacher). Reading all the books now. Each one exposes a little more of Reacher's background, characteristics, talents, motivation, circle of friends etc.. No bad Reacher books!

"I was going to make it or die trying." J. Johnson

Jack Reacher helps a woman with a cain as she's having difficulty putting her dry cleaning into her car. Three men approach with guns drawn, they abduct the woman and take Reacher also.

They carry the prisoners to their enclave in Montana where they have a community of people who have certain intentions against the govenrment. The woman, FBI agent, Holly Johnson, is meant to be a bargaining chip with the government.

Reacher shows his many talents in this second installment of his stories. He's intelligent and highly analytical. He seems to be able to forsee what the men are planning before they act. He is also the lone man against seemingly insurmountable odds. He also shows his human side and develops a fondness for Holly. His compassion and strength are two of the reasons why readers enjoy Reacher as a character and sympathise with his actions.

The story had lots of action and the plot was logically laid out. The author provided a few twists and surprises that made it even more of a fun read.

This was the second time I have read this novel and enjoyed it once again.
