    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    I've read all Reacher books at least twice. Thank you Lee Child and Dick Hill for another great Reacher. This book, as well as all others, is done well with enough "who done it" mystery, well thought out with great detective work, and good character building. I think Lee Child is a GREAT writer. Added: Tom Cruise as Reacher is LUDICROUS (and I've said so at Lee Child FB). My vote for movie portrayal of Reacher is Jim Caviezel. If you like Reacher, you should check out the new TV show Person of Interest.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Story

    Puller is a similar character to Jack Reacher. The story line is similar to a Lee Child storyline. So if you like Jack Reacher kind of novel, you will like this. It's definitely not as good as Lee Child writes it and Puller isn't quite the same character as Reacher, but similar.

    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    Story

    This was a very long read. It was interesting and it flowed well and the characters are memorable. The plot is believeable though way over the realm of normal happenings. I gave it a 3 star for story because it was LONG and part 5 was the longest.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"

    Excellent, excellent! I'm a big fan of Jack Reacher by Lee Childs and this novel, characters, plot is made of the same stuff. Loved it!

    A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York's elite, it is a call to terror.

    Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his ten children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

    Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.

    Peggy C. says: "Patterson delivers a roller coaster ride!"
    "Predictable and shallow"
    Overall

    I agree with some of the reviews: This is not his best book only 3 stars for Patterson. The story line is not up to Patterson standards, rather dull and predictable. I to believe that it seems like Patterson just wanted to get another book out there and we loyal followers bought in. I'm not saying, don't get it, just don't expect much.

    A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York - including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

    Cheryl says: "Now You See Her"
    "Terrible - read the reviews before you purchase"
    Overall

    The publisher writes the following "Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet - a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure"... and it's just isn't so. Like others have reviewed herein, the wirting, narration, and musical background are just plain aggevating. A novel doesn't have to be true, but unless it is syfy or fantasy, it should feel like it could happen. The activities of the policeman are something out of dusty, broken down. itty-bitty small town in Texas in the 1950s (maybe). Just an annoying read altogether. Wish I would have believed the reviews, but instead I figured this is JAMES PATTERSON, and it's got to be good. I so very wrong!

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."

    It was okay. Pretty drawn out. The last quarter of the book seem to drop off and loose it's mystery and intrigue like the writer just didn't know how to wrap it up.

    Guess I'm tiring of Eve and Roarke's erotica .. distracts from the story line
