The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2020 - his 25th adventure. No one's bigger than Jack Reacher.
Jack Reacher gets off the bus in a sleepy no-name town outside Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to grab a cup of coffee and move right along.
Not going to happen.
The town has been shut down by a cyber attack. At the centre of it all, whether
he likes it or not, is Rusty Rutherford. He's an average IT guy, but he knows more than he thinks.
As the bad guys move in on Rusty, Reacher moves in on them . . .
And now Rusty knows he's protected, he's never going to leave the big man's side.
Reacher might just have to stick around and find out what the hell's gone wrong . . . and then put it right, like only he can.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
After 24 Reacher novels (plus one novella and 18 short stories—some written solo, some written with other authors) Lee Child (real name Jim Grant) is passing on the torch to another writer. His brother Andrew Child (real name Andrew Grant). The pair have co-authored this taught thriller set around the fallout of a cyber attack on a small town ex-miltary-policeman-turned-crime-fighting-drifter Jack Reacher happens upon during his now 23-year tour of America. And barely a beat is skipped in the transition. Smart deductions are made, seemingly unwinnable fights are won, and Reacher says nothing a lot. It seems we’re in safe hands

Wasn’t too sure
Reacher seems to evolve as does the writing. At first I wasn’t sure but once I got into the book then it was fine. Maybe a bit more complicated than some before but it’s still a good read.
Very derivative of previous stories. No clear “enemy” or reason for him to hang around. Many scenes straight out of other books; are all Police Departments run by corrupt detectives in America? Since when did he stay in town for a week after the denouement and then go back to where he had just come from? Perhaps it is time for him to be KIA and mourned rather than carrying on bereft of ideas.
Lee seems be slowly struggling for ideas,the last books really disappointing. Suggest the time has come to kill off Jack no name Reacher to salvage his well earned reputation.
