The story line finds Heller and Reacher in a bar, watching a baseball game. Having never met, their ability to size each other up is impressive. A heavy set nervous man sits between them in the bar. He is obviously in trouble, and neither of our heroes can turn away from trouble.
Fans of these authors enjoy the way they both describe a scene. Their ability to bring the reader into the story is a talent that escapes many. Unfortunately, this story is way too short for all of the intricate details. It was eighty percent build up and twenty percent real story. If I didn't know and love Finder and Child, I might have found this more enjoyable, but as it is I will just anxiously await their next full novels.
