Suffering from writer's block, novelist Rachel Ames escapes to a lake cabin to calm her mind and regain a sense of herself. The location is perfect. Isolated. Beautiful. Inspiring. It even comes with a good-looking landlord who shows an interest in her. But she can't shake the sense that something terrible has followed her to the lake, something just beyond her consciousness, something out on the edge where the sounds of a raging fire and sirens linger whenever she slows down to listen.

the storyline was awesome. had good twists, sexy scenes and action. the voice didnt stay consistent with the tones of the characters so it was a touch confusing who was talking, but don't let that stop you from listening.

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He's just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he's arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn't kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn't stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

Unfortunately I wasn't impressed as much as I thought I would be because it became a movie. I didn't and haven't seen the movie. Maybe I will to hopefully get a better sense of the book.

I noticed several times the writing repeated itself a few times. That became frustrating. I'm one to give an author 3 tries so I'll try again.

The narrator was ok. It was difficult to listen when there were moments at the end of a sentence he was winded. I wanted to blow air into him, or something.
