Not quite as good as the first “Puller” book
After reading the first John Puller book I was obliged to hunt down the second in this series.
I wasn’t disappointed but I didn’t enjoy it quite so much as Zero Day (the first book by David Baldacci to introduce his character, Puller).
However, it started out good and there was a story running all the way through it but it wasn’t quite so believable as Zero Day although we’re all fully aware that this kind of stuff goes on but perhaps not on such a grand scale.
I wasn’t so sure about the “twist” near the end and it’s this that turned me against it.
I did like the character and if you’re a fan of Jack Reacher, I’m sure you will enjoy it too.
But my tip would be to read Zero Day first.
I loved this book right from the start particularly as the tension was there immediately you started reading…. Will she or won’t she blow the train to smithereens?
The storyline continued at a fast pace all the way through with twists and turns along the way a la Lee Child fashion.
Reacher was his usual amazing self, perceptive without giving the game away but with the odd mistake along the way which he usually ends up kicking himself for.
Two bloodthirsty female killers totally lacking in emotion made it hard to put down.
One of my fastest Kindle reads!
I only get to read by the pool or the beach maybe a couple of times a week for an hour or so but this one had me sitting outside on our kitchen terrace too, frantically clicking the Kindle page turn button!
Still got some more Jack Reacher novels to work my way through but what happens when I get to the end? It’s gonna be a very sad day
