I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
This author is the younger brother of Lee Child. I've only read one of Child's Jack Reacher novels and when my book club discussed we just hooted with laughter at the supposedly cool details.
I wish I could say that Grant was better but there was one OTT female villain who will no doubt figure in my eventual review. I want to ask my book club to read this one too, so we can have another laughing meeting!
