What people are saying about Past Tense...
Child is an excellent writer...As ever, the prose is precision-tooled. - Evening Standard
Lee Child shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher. - Atlantic
The concision, procedural chops and terse, surprising action of Past Tense make it a fantastic read. - USA Today

It is hard to identify precisely what it was that I didn't like, all of the introspection of the 2 other main characters (apart from JR) was annoying. JR was also too busy self analysing - the whole book just didn't work for me. I was almost angry when I was finished with it.
Had it been a Hard Cover I would have tossed it in the bin (heresy to me, I have kept all of my books over the last 40 years) - I wouldn't have bothered lending it to anyone (unlike all of my other Lee Child books) but as it was on my Kindle I just deleted it.
So sad :(
That is why I say perhaps the shine is wearing off .. perhaps it is not so much the story as me knowing Jack Reacher inside out and being able to get an idea of what happens next.
A good read nonetheless, but I felt that this was a similar novel to another Jack Reacher story. Bit of a shame really seeing as I look out for their release to find they are not up to expectations.
Of course Reacher does his tough thing also. The usual suspects get hit in the face if not just outright killed.
