rating: 3 of 5 stars
Child is one of my favorites. Really great book. A tad bit of overkill in the descriptions of the characters movements getting in and out of the "compound" and Despair Colorado. (That was the critical and cryptic part. Read it and you'll understand!)
Other than that, this book is close to riveting. I love Jack Reacher. He's a 21st century cowboy: forever independent, fearless and always does the next right thing. Plus, in the end, he always leaves the girl!
I'll be picking up everything written by Lee Child until he disappoints me.
