    Reacher's anonymity in Florida is shattered by an investigator who's come looking for him. But hours after his arrival, the stranger is murdered. Retracing the PI's trail back to New York, Reacher's compelled to find out who was looking for him and why. He never expected the reasons to be so personal - and twisted.

    What would have made Tripwire better?

    A plot that would make sense. I read the first two Reacher books and enjoyed them. This storyline was horrible.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    Not likely.


    What character would you cut from Tripwire?

    Tony.


    Any additional comments?

    This book just let me down. The storyline was absolutely unbelievable and I couldn't even finish the book.

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon Fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Craig Hansen says: "Not bad, but a bit biased"
    "Interesting read."
    Overall

    I thought that Mr. Krakauer did a much better job on this book than on his others. In his other books he always finds a way to stick himself in the book. He reserved that part until the very end. The book is an interesting read and much like any investigative book leans one way or the other, however I thought that Mr. Krakauer did a relatively good job in portraying the lives of the Mormon Fundamentalists. Definately worth the time to read.
