    Story
    (1511)

    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.

    "Where is Reacher?"
    Overall

    This is my favorite series. However, this installment is full of holes. There is no way the "real" Reacher would not have figured this one out earlier. There was no mystery and, for the plot to work, Lee Child had to add too many unbelievable, nonsensical facts to this story. Still, it is an enjoyable listen, but a disappointment for a Reacher book. Lee -- you have us at hello -- no need for cliffhangers.
    I hope the next installment will make more sense, and that Reacher will be as sharp against the Russian as he usually is, and as he was, in this book, while helping Amanda.

    Story

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Jane says: "Definitely entertaining. I had some smiles."

    Story

    Excellent book -- the personal injury recovery was adequate in light of the past history of the client, the fact that a rogue agent was at fault, and the fact that the amount recovered was over and above the the medical costs.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Story

    Great book. Very entertaining. The logic is not perfert -- why not shoot Oswald the first time Hal sees him, then returning to see the result? But . . . who cares? Well done.
