'A fascinating, swaggeringly confident performance' Sunday Times
When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly set, freshly busted nose - it isn't easy to hitch a ride in Nebraska. At last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman.
Within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and there's a police roadblock ahead. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys . . .
Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, A Wanted Man follows on directly from the end of Worth Dying For.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
Bestseller Child's surprise-filled 17th Jack Reacher novel (after 2011's The Affair) takes the ex-military policeman on a wild road ride that builds to a terrific slam-bang climax. While hitchhiking one winter night in Nebraska with a broken nose that makes him look more than usually disreputable, Reacher is picked up by two men and a woman wearing identical cheap blue shirts. The fun begins when clues suggest that the men in the car are responsible for the brutal murder of another man at an abandoned pump station. The role of the woman in the car remains unclear. Sheriff Victor Goodman is quick to call the FBI, which arrives in the person of Julia Sorenson, only the first of many agencies and agents heard from. While the erratic trip through America's heartland doesn't always follow a logical path, Reacher displays his acuity, patience, endurance, and military skills in the exhilarating fashion series fans have come to expect.
This was an excellent read, keeps you thinking and trying to work the plot out.Jack Reacher is at his best as usual.Recommend this book for people who like action. Not boring and keeps you wanting to read to find out what happens.
A Wanted Man
Fantastic..Lee Child and Jack Reacher yet again are on fire..I didn't want this book to end,and as alway's can't wait for another.Bring it on Lee.
I could only rate this one as okay. Unusual for Lee Childs as I always look forward to Reacher books. Perhaps the author is as stunned as I am when I heard of the astounding decision to cast Tom Cruise as Reacher in a film version of one of his books!!
