What I am really reading

I have just been loaned an advance copy of the new Lee Child novel Worth Dying For

There goes Sunday.

UPDATE: Brilliant as ever. I read it in a sitting. (A lying, really, supine on the sofa. Well, it was Father’s Day.) More humour than usual, but all the expected unexpected plot twists so it is gripping throughout. But the explanation for how Reacher survived the final scene of 61 Hours is basically that he is awesome (practically “with one bound he was free”), which isn’t really good enough. And I’m not sure about the ending – his behaviour seemed way out of character. It will be very interesting to see what the reviews say come publication in October.
