About this deal

But what he didn’t expect was to find himself, unwillingly, back in the army and to find that Major Turner is under close arrest. Jack Reacher is back and don’t worry folks he’s back with his usual swagger, confidence and his remarkable ability to get things done, completely on his own terms and in his own time of course.

Adultery, which this does not seem to have been since both parties were unmarried (but that technical detail does not trouble Child) is a criminal offence in the army. Despite the chill they were dressed in T-shirts, tight and white, above the kind of athletic pants sprinters peel off seconds before a race.I am now moving straight on to Personal which is where I wanted to be before my holiday later this week where I’ll be taking the most recent Reacher stories and the short story collection to read while I’m away. I’m sure deep down he’s always itching for a fight but he does have an inner strength that reins it in. Liking the sound of her he decides to head to Virginia from South Dakota and turn up unannounced and ask her out to dinner. There are some nuances about Reacher, that are part of the package of who he is, that are missing, or misleading in this latest book. Lee has three homes—an apartment in Manhattan, a country house in the south of France, and whatever airplane cabin he happens to be in while traveling between the two.

Lately, (or maybe it’s always been this way) the stories seem to take place in a very small geographical area. Well, of course, no one threatens to beat the crap out of Jack Reacher, let alone actually do it, and before long the two musclemen are lying comatose next to their car which now has two new dents in the sheet metal from where Reacher has introduced their heads to the side of their ride.Jack Reacher, in my opinion, has become arrogant – he is no longer the Jack Reacher I have enjoyed reading about all these years. To me it was the same old Jack Reacher, saving the world and finding a little love along the way, only to move onto the next town and do it all over again.

Easy enough to mime sudden comprehension and an eager approach and a hand raised in welcome, and easy enough to let the eager approach become unstoppable momentum, and to turn the raised hand into a scything blow, elbow into the left-hand guy’s face, hard and downward, followed by a stamp of the right foot, as if killing an imaginary cockroach had been the whole point of the manic exercise, whereupon the bounce off the stamp would set up the same elbow backhand into the right-hand guy’s throat, one, two, three, smack, stamp, smack, game over. I really enjoyed the verbal tennis and the scene proof, if ever it was needed, that Lee Child doesn’t have to rely on Reacher creating havoc wherever he goes just to be entertaining. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. As soon as he does two musclemen, clearly military men out of uniform, arrive at the motel and tell Reacher to get out of town, promising that no one will come looking for him if he does, and that they will beat the crap out of him if he refuses to do so.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The part of the description of his physique in Reacher's own words begging to be an introductory shot of Reacher -" "an extreme mesomorph physique, with a six-pack like a cobbled city street, and a chest like a suit of N.

Soon he and the commanding officer are on the run as AWOL fugitives and they leapfrog the country attempting to investigate the ever-thickening plot while also dodging both investigators AND the villains of the piece . Without passing of any of the story / spoilers - there is a part of the story (deep emotional angle mentioned above) and some other scenes which could disappoint a typical Reacher fan not used to it (did to me) - but this is not a major irritant to enjoying this book.

And, not having written a review since "A Wanted Man", which came out after the casting of the Reacher movie, I have to say the movie itself wasn't awful.
