Only one man could have done it. And Reacher is the one man who can find him.
This new heartstopping, nailbiting book in Lee Child's number-one bestselling series takes Reacher across the Atlantic to Paris - and then to London. The stakes have never been higher - because this time, it's personal.
This is the nineteenth book in this series and is it me or are they being released a lot quicker than before? Perhaps Mr Child has been sitting on manuscripts, but it does seem as if fans have to wait less than I recall. The question though is, are the books still up to the same high standard and I will confess to being a little disappointed with this latest offering.
Whilst I appreciate that this is not the first time our hero, Jack, has had to work alongside others to get the job done, for me personally I do prefer his "Lone Ranger" approach. I'm here in the UK, so whilst it's fun to read about places I might have visited, it's quite hard to imagine Jack getting away with the sort of things he does when in more obscure or desolate environments. As for the "bad guys", hmm I'm not totally convinced that the result was the one I wanted. I do love Jack and his straight approach, but felt I had to wade through quite a lot that seemed unnecessary to the plot.
I've adored this series and Mr Child has a fabulous imagination and always does such astonishing research to bring his stories to life. I pick up these books expecting a rip roaring adventure and although this is not my favourite, will be clamouring to read the next one. Lee Child is a meticulous writer who never skimps on details and let's hope he's back with an exciting adventure again soon!
