About this deal

Inevitably they escape and begin a terrific cross-country chase as they try to unravel what is going on, with the able assistance of their appointed lawyers and a very clever sergeant. Out of all the consequences that arise out of human motivation I do think that the threat of isolation and the threat of death are among the top two motivations that drive humans to do what they do. Lee Child's creation, Jack Reacher, manages to be the thinking person's action hero and a one-man wrecking crew. The plot is timely, and the story is driven by ethical dilemmas faced by Reacher as a result of his past.

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.The cover is pretty with its turquoise waters and yellow highlights as a drop of water disturbs the reflection of the Senate building in the waters of the Potomac. Reacher is there to meet--in person--the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. This should not be read if what you're looking for is an in-depth, psychological understanding into the human psyche delivered with beautiful literary prose.

Welcome to the relentless world of Jack Reacher and his impressive tendency to be in the wrong place at the right time. In this 18th Reacher suspense/adventure story, said retired military policeman finally reaches his former unit headquarters on the outskirts of Washington, D. Casting was horrendous - Tom Cruise is simply not Jack Reacher and I thought Rosamund Pike was just awful - but I thought the movie was fairly well done despite that.Reacher does everything with such cool calmness (thanka to his military training) I know sometimes he had my heart pounding. During his tenure his company made Brideshead Revisited, The Jewel in the Crown, Prime Suspect, and Cracker. He keeps the action cranking better than anyone, but, best of all, he keeps us guessing about Reacher. I hate to say it … but after 18 books, Reacher is starting to suffer from the Spenser Syndrome: a great character that is becoming redundant.

I am a huge Lee Child / Jack Reacher fan, and have been reading these books for years, but it has got to the point where I say that this could very well be my last Jack Reacher purchase.This Story is poorly written, makes no sense and is very boring compared to some of the earlier titles in the Series. Once you've fallen in love with Reacher, rejoice in the fact that there are 17 more novels to get absorbed and lost in. Yes, yes, I know, easy enough for a reader to say "If I'd written this, I'd have done this and this. One of Waterstones’ very favourite authors, Lee Child sprang from redundancy at Granada Television in 1995 to rise to thriller-writing pre-eminence with his sequence of stories featuring ex-military policeman Jack Reacher.
