Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

Lee Child created a great character when he developed Jack Reacher. I am always eager to read the latest episode of the continuing adventures with this strong, take-no-prisoners hero. Thanks for yet another thrilling tale!

I have now listened to both Tucker Wayne novels. James Rollins is a talented storyteller. I particularly love Kane, the war dog and the relationship portrayed between Tucker and Kane. This story is fascinating because of the drone technology and defenses that might possibly thwart attacks in reality. Well done!

Barry Eisler creates a very entertaining story with interesting characters. I went from his first John Rain book straight through to the end of all of his novels and short stories. I am sorry to have reached the end. Love to have an opportunity to read more of your works, Mr Eisler!

After nearly dying while taking out a target in Hong Kong, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which wants him to fix a "problem" in Manila. He also has a new partner, Dox, whose good-ol'-boy persona masks a sniper as deadly as Rain himself. And he has a new hope: that by using his talents for something good, he might atone for all the lives he has taken. But when Rain's conscience causes him to botch the Manila hit, he finds out the next problem the Mossad wants fixed is himself. Is Delilah, his Mossad lover, coming to help him? Or was she sent to finish him off?

John Rain has disappeared to Brazil to escape the killing business and the enemies encircling him in Japan. But the CIA isn't willing to lose its premier "natural causes" contract killer, and they force Rain to take on a high-risk assignment: eliminate a ruthless arms dealer operating in Southeast Asia. The upside? Financial, of course, along with the ongoing chimera of moral redemption. But first, Rain will have to survive the downside: a second assassin zeroing in on the target; the target's consort, an alluring and dangerous woman with an agenda of her own.
