TITLE: WITHOUT FAIL
AUTHOR: LEE CHILD
Details: no. 6 Jack Reacher Thriller
Jack Reacher is doing his usual thing of roaming from here to there with no luggage, no address and no official documentation when he's tracked down by M.E. Froelich. M.E. is the former partner of his diseased brother Joe and heading the security team in charge of the vice-president elect. Death threats are being send to the vice-president to be, and M.E. needs Jack's help in assessing the risks and providing protection.
After a nearly successful assassination attempt the official enquiry goes in one direction while Jack is sure they need to look elsewhere. If he's wrong all effort and loss will have been for nothing.
As always, a very gripping and thrilling story, almost impossible to put down. There was one slightly disappointing moment though when all supposedly talented investigators missed out on a clue that stood out like a sore thumb.
