I've just read the last Jack Reacher book...

and feel partly bereft and partly relieved. I felt the violence became worse and worse in the later ones - to the extent that I'd skip paragraphs where it occurred. I almost wish there were bowlderised versions, with those bits left out. I also felt they became a bit formulaic.
But I also miss the escapism. Can anyone recommend something similar?

I love Jack Reacher but haven't read the last one because the reviews of shocking. I did read that his brother has taken over writing the books I wonder if he had some input into this one? I've just been reading an earlier one sat in the sunshine today actually.
Have you read any Robert Crais? I love Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

I suggest Zoe Sharp. She’s a terrific writer and her characters are intense, edgy and dangerous.

I think that Blue Moon (the most recent) was all Lee Childs, and that his brother is getting involved with the next ones.

David Baldacci is quite good too.
