AUTHOR: LEE CHILD
Details: no. 7 Jack Reacher Thriller / Large Print
When this book starts, with Reacher killing a cop, it seems that he has lost his plot and his mind at last. Of course he hasn't. There is a reason for his actions, a very personal one, which is revealed during the course of the story. A reason that will lead to a lot more violence and several casualties.
As he teams up with three FBI agents on an off-the-books mission to rescue a colleague, Reacher's motives are quite the same as theirs.
I don't want to say anything else about the story because I don't want to give anything away. Suffice to say that there's lots of action, maybe a bit too much violence for my liking, and a sexual relationship that felt a bit forced into the story.
Still it is hard to find fault with a book that is this hard to put down, with a hero as fascinating as Reacher. And it will probably be even harder to not rush out and order the next instalment in.
