Border Lines (Reachers Book 2)
The job means working for an old enemy and crossing the border into London. Both are risky, but Charlie has no idea how high the stakes really are. The team will have to confront their past, each other and a killer who is closer than they realize. But can they all make it out of the city alive?
"We all remember that kid in Piccadilly. That determined look he had on his face as he willed all those people to him. Just using his mind, he pulled them close then blew them all to pieces. It could be anyone. Your neighbour, your friend, your lover. Remain vigilant. Reachers are everywhere."

This is the second book of the series that I have read and I have to say – I loved this book! The characters, which I struggled with in the first book, were perfect in this one. I understood who they were and what a Reacher was this time. I don’t usually read serials, but I’m so glad I followed this one up. I loved the minor characters too, particularly, Roxy. I felt that this time I understood who he was and even quite liked him.
S’aven was the poorer city on the outskirts of London and all set in the future. The border lines referred to surrounded London and the guards that patrol them are sometimes brutal. People literally get away with murder.
Riva, the wife of Pinky Morris who was murdered in the first book, now his empire. She wants to run the borders, but three people will be voting against her. That’s where the brothers, Charlie and John along with Rachel. Running parallel to the story, there is a killer on the loose, and he is suspected Reacher. Rachel’s ex-husband and his boss are working on the case out to find who the killer is.
I really did love this book and I loved the world L E Fitzpatrick created and her storytelling is magical. I was in London and S’haven in my imagination because of descriptions and knowledge of the area created. Wow! Just a brilliant read!

L. E. Fitzpatrick has produced a sequel to The Running Game, with a tale that says to me, give me more. The Reachers are gifted humans in dystopian London. The author has written an adventure and mystery in a fast read book that makes you wonder what comes next, and at the same time, if such a society could be possible. I think you’ll like both books and the characters develop and the story expands. Read both together. You can because they’re both written and I have been told a new one is on the way. Hurrah.
