M.J.Rose: In Session
Of the characters, I've only read Jack Reacher novels. His story in the book is called Knowing You're Alive where he helps Dr. Snow (whose series I now want to read very, very much) wait for the ambulance and police after a bombing by telling her a story.
Bear in mind that Dr. Snow is a sex therapist so all the stories concern the topic.
I've read Steve Berry's The Romanov Prophecy, but Cotton Malone somehow escaped me, so now I got to know this bookstore owner (now, of course he wasn't that before), I want to know more about his adventures.
There is one more character appearing in the stories that Dr. Snow talks to (not in the capacity as a sex therapist with any of them, it's just her nature to look at people like that) is John Rain - a character by an author I've never had any contact with before - Barry Eisler.
John Rain is an assassin but I believe that is the most visible thing he is - it seems he is a mystery waiting to be unraveled by an avid reader (like me). :)
I'm very much looking forward to getting to know all these characters better thanks to these stories.
