If you’re looking for that thriller to curl up with by the pool, then I would suggest Lee Child’s Persuader. Although it’s what I call a “guy’s book” or a “guy’s movie”, meaning that the protagonist single handedly manages to fight his way through everything, it was a good book. The plot had some good twists, lots of suspense, the violence wasn’t too graphic or gratuitous and the characters were well done. One of those books that you can’t put down and you wonder how in the world it got to be 2am, but not something that will tax your brain too much if you’re just looking to be entertained.

  1. Lee Child is close to the top of the list in the thriller/action genre. His plots are well laid out and as varied as the locations where the books are set. And his writing makes the books interesting and extremely readable.
    The Jack Reacher character is at the edge of credibility, however his actions and responses are entirely understandable and reasonable within the context of the series. I’ve enjoyed this series since it first came out.
