I finished 'The Hard Way' by Lee Child today.

Several years ago now, Lee Child (an English writer living in the US) developed Jack Reacher as the central character for his books. He's a former military policeman who 'went all Kung Fu' and decided to 'walk the Earth' after leaving the army (for want of a better description).

In the books, Child deposits Reacher in different situations across the US and it's up to Reacher to solve what's going on. In this book, he comes across a husband whose wife has been kidnapped. Unfortunately for the guy, this isn't the first wife to whom this has happened, and as a result, as much to satisfy his curiosity as anything else, Reacher decides to find out what on Earth is going on.

It wasn't a bad book, but I've read a number of his books now and they're starting to feel a little samey. If you want that, you will probably like this book. If you don't, you'd probably do better to look elsewhere.
