I love Jack Reacher. I think I am in awe of him. Everytime a new book comes out by Lee Child, I rush to get it. Some authors are just like that, but then when you finish the book (in one sitting because you can not put it down) you go into a kind of emotional rollercoaster – that was so good but damn I finished it, and now I have to wait. I have to wait, and wait and wait some more for the next one to come out.
In the newest novel by Lee Child, Jack Reacher is on the road again and this time looking for information about his father. He did not set out to find any information, in typical Reacher form fashion, he stumbled onto a sign pointing to the town in which his father grew up. Reacher is on his way to San Diego for the summer months and not in too big of a hurry, so why not find out what he can.
I am going out on a limb and say that this is the best Jack Reacher story yet. For fans you get a taste of the way Reacher’s mind works, always analyzing the situation. For newbies you get the art of defense and survival per Reacher. The reader also gets not one but two situations that you do not know which will peak when, thus the edge of your seat read. It also reveals that there is something Reacher has never faced before but must face head on now.
If you love suspense, a great story and tremendous characters, this is the read for you!
