Persuader by Lee Child
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I took a long break from the Reacher series. After the excellent Prime series, I decided to return. I enjoyed this. The plot was complex enough not to be predictable, but not unnecessarily convoluted. Reacher is Reacher. He's able to survive some fairly challenging circumstances -- it strains the credulity but that comes with the territory. It is hard now not to see Alan Ritchson in my mind as Reacher; though he's a bit older in my head.
I liked how Child wove together Reacher's memory with the current events; it added tension and the parallelism underscored key elements. More characterization could have been down with the Beck family; we get to know them just enough for the plot but no more.
