The second Jack Reacher book and the second one I've read in as many months. One of the odd things (to me) going in was the fact that this book was written in third person, while the first one was narrated by Reacher himself. I thought that would bug me more, but it turned out not to. In fact, the author's reason behind that was quite clear, as the narrative follows multiple groups of people and various viewpoints. In fact, while I wouldn't say Reacher was a minor character here, he's probably only in about half of the book's scenes. Hence, the need for third person narration. Like the first novel, the writing here is very cinematic; it's very easy to visual most of the action. (This really seems designed to be a movie or TV series; I suppose due to Child's background in television.) Once again, Reacher gets involved in something just by virtue of being in the wrong place at the wrong time (if this is a common element, I think it would grow tiresome pretty quickly). In this case, he ends up getting abducting along with a female FBI agent by a group of militia who are seeking to secede from the U.S. It's an okay story, told in gripping detail, sometimes in graphic detail (which I appreciate), but it didn't really inspire me to keep reading the series. Am I missing something?
