'This is one of his best' - The Times

Jack Reacher is back in a brand new white-knuckle read from Lee Child.

It's a random universe, but once in a blue moon things turn out just right.

In a nameless city, two rival criminal gangs are competing for control. But they hadn’t counted on Jack Reacher arriving on their patch.

Reacher is trained to notice things.

He’s on a Greyhound bus, watching an elderly man sleeping in his seat, with a fat envelope of cash hanging out of his pocket. Another passenger is watching too ... hoping to get rich quick.

As the mugger makes his move, Reacher steps in.

The old man is grateful, yet he turns down Reacher’s offer to help him home. He’s vulnerable, scared, and clearly in big, big trouble.

What hold could the gangs have on the old guy? Will Reacher be in time to stop bad things happening?

The odds are better with Reacher involved. That's for damn sure.

Missing the Sparkle

This is the most formulaic and least entertaining of the Reacher stories to date. Still a good yarn, but definitely not a great one. It lacks the depth, pace, and realism of earlier in the series. The additional characters are as two dimensional as Jonah in the last two Tomb Raider games - a mere mechanical convenience to try to alleviate the persistent feeling of lack of context.

Where are the evocative descriptions of past books? The humour and the power to make you feel that you are right there? Is this the product of a ghost writer?

I have read every Reacher since the start. I have previously ordered them in advance. From now on, I’m going to look at samples of the next one to decide whether or not to end my collection with this last offering.

Timely release given the antics on Capitol Hill

As usual, Lee Child has produced another version of Jack Reacher weaving his magic with another ingenious plot of intrigue and plot twists. As a bonus, a very contemporary back story involving overseas interests and bad guys.
