2007: #19 – Die Trying (Lee Child)
Book #19 was Die Trying, the 2nd book in Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series. The back of the book reads:
Jack Reacher is an innocent bystander–in the wrong place at the wrong time–when a woman is kidnapped. Now, he’s at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom, for this mysterious woman is worth far more than Reacher ever suspected. And though she doesn’t ask for his help, he’s going to give it to her…
Because ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a hero. He’s used to saving lives. But this time he’s going to take a few before he’s through…
An excellent book in an excellent (so far) series. Child really knows how to grab your attention from the start and keep it throughout the whole book. The conspiracy theories were even believable as conspiracy theories. I actually think this one was better than his first, Killing Floor.

Clearly, I’m now going through your reviews stalking your reads…
Child is fantastic. I’ve read all but a couple of his books and he just gets better.
