Kramer and Jack Reacher

Have to admit I’m hooked on the the Jack Reacher series. Wikipedia had the following description of my current read – “Worth Dying For”…

And Reacher’s altruistic meddling of course precipitates a series of increasingly violent confrontations during which a local history of unspeakable perversion and torture and murder is revealed. Corpses cover the countryside as the story continues churning out gore as implacably as a meatgrinder all the way up to its final merciless act of retribution.

Does this remind you, in tone, if not subject, of…

…Well it’s a story about love, deception, greed, lust and…unbridled enthusiasm…that’s what led to Billy Mumphrey’s downfall. You see …Billy was a simple country boy. You might say a cockeyed optimist, …who got himself mixed up in the high stakes game of world diplomacy and international intrigue.
