Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Not a Drill by Lee Child, A Very Short Story

This a short story, not a novelette, just a short story.  It is very short and nearly Reacherless.  

Reacher wants to get to the end of I95 for the same reason he goes anywhere, just to do it.   He meets up with some back packers and ends up in Allagash, Maine.  (I googled that to see if there really is such a place and there is!)

Something suspicious is going on Naismith which is the southern entrance to a wilderness trail in the book.   Reacher's new friends are not what they seem and Reacher's physicality is not tested in any way in this book.   Not one incident of head butting, which was disappointing.  

The book ties very loosely to interrogation of terrorists and government black operations, loosely.   The story was not fleshed out and had a very unfinished feel.

First Reacher related story I have found myself feeling decidedly lukewarm. 

Web Site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
