Book Beginnings on Friday - October 1st

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners.

Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

This weeks book is Lee Child's Die Trying (Jack Reacher, No. 2).  It's my first purchase of an ebook to be read on the Sony Prs 505 that I received as a gift.  The purchase was made through the book depository, whose point of sale was second only to Amazon as the most pleasant I have come across.
But here is the first sentence:

Nathan Rubin died because he got brave.
This is the second Jack Reacher book I have read and I am getting the feeling that Lee Child likes hitting you with a death upfront.  Right away you are in the action.

Are there any other Jack Reacher/Lee Child fans out there that can confirm this for me? It's a classic way to start a novel, but I wonder if its over use will become a bit of a drawback.
