This thrilling new Novel in the Jack Reacher series is yet another fast-paced action adventure.
Starting with Reacher hitchhiking, with a bust nose and no sense of smell, he is eventually picked up by two Men, King and McQueen and a Woman, Karen, who he assumes are Workers on a team building exercise.
At the same time, a Nebraskan Sheriff Puts up Roadblocks, calling in the FBI to a murder scene, a witness said he saw two men.
Reacher quickly works out that the two men have kidnapped Karen and this is her car, letting him drive to get them through the roadblocks.
As usual, confronted by an injustice, he won’t let go until it’s been corrected, he has to see it through to the end like a one-man army, even when he is put into an FBI safe house.
Getting justice done involves a few twists and turns. Suffice to say that Lee Child has crafted another brilliant thriller, making it a great addition to the series.
Even the film adaptation of One Shot is looking great with Tom Cruise as Reacher, so that’s something else I need to have a look at in the New Year.
A Wanted Man by Lee Child is published by Bantam Press.
