Never quite know if I like Reacher books or not. Sometimes it’s just too easy for the character to triumph yet he does, at everything. They are a bit of opium for that part of the mind that needs a quick thrill with a well known character – a Batman or Superman. Tom Cruise he is not – thank goodness – but if you like others you will find this enjoyable and quick.
A Jack Reacher Novel
Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise, as he comes to the UK.
Jack Reacher is alone, the way he likes it.
He watches a man cross a New York street and drive away in a Mercedes. The car contains $1 million of ransom money. Reacher’s job is to make sure it all turns out right – money paid, family safely returned.
But Reacher is in the middle of a nasty little war where nothing is simple.
What started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away, in the sleepy English countryside.
Reacher’s going to have to do this one the hard way.
