    Story
    (1150)

    A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

    Overall

    I loved the earlier Reacher novels and hope for the experience of reading a Reacher novel as good as The Killing Floor once again. It's not going to happen though, that's clear. Child seems to be getting sloppier and lazier with the plot elements with each passing book. In this book, our hero Reacher is a total stumblebum. He ponders inconsequentials (such as the derivation of several idiomatic expressions) and yet fails when he is needed (defending an elderly librarian!). The conclusion leaves us hanging...did Reacher miraculously survive a disaster that would stretch the credulity of a 5-year to believe he could be alive, or did he perish. For everyone's sake, let's hope it's the latter and that Child focuses his energy on a new hero. Maybe then, we'll get another Killing Floor.

    Four years ago, assassin Court Gentry was betrayed by his handlers in the CIA. Now, an old comrade returns to haunt him - and to force him on a mission against his will. With his ruthless employers on one side, his former friends on the other, and a doomed mission ahead, Court Gentry would kill to get out of this one alive.

    Clayton says: "really impressive"
    "Sophmoric writing for a sophmore effort"
    Overall

    Don't get me wrong, this book is fun for the action. There's not much to the plot, but sometimes that's just what you want in an action book. Unfortunately, the cliched writing detracts from it all. Sometimes I just wish that bullets would be fired from a gun instead of the gun "belching hot lead," and so on.

    As others have mentioned, the Gray Man has gotten a bit stupid and drug-addled. Perhaps it's intended to give the character some humanity, but it doesn't quite work. Perhaps if he met a woman, even for a 10-minute drink.
