    I wasn't very impressed. She is probably my least favorite Baldacci character, heck I liked Ranger Sam more. Also I thought it was to far fetched, just can't see an FBI agent doing that.

    Agreed.

    I thought it was average overall. That's why I wanted to know what you thought.

    I am giving Baldacci a rest for a little while. I figured out the previous book way too early, but I like the Amos Decker character. I'll go back.

    Giving Michael Connelly's Bosch series a try.

    I recently bought a big box of Robert B. Parker hardcovers. Jesse Stone, Sunny Randall, Spencer; and a couple of Cole & Hitch westerns. Still have a few more to read.

    Nobody better than Parker for snappy dialogue.

    Movie was better than the book IMO, which is pretty rare in my experience.

    Haven't seen the movie. But I'm having a tough time sympathizing with the two main characters; and the chronology is awkward. I generally slog on to the finish; though.

    Yeah, the characters are pretty much dolts.

    Nice light reading selection. I may recommend it to the missus.

    I'm always a little shocked and a lot pleasantly surprised when I stumble across a Reacher book in the local thrift shop that has eluded me.
