Plot synopsis: Jack Reacher is, as usual, alone and minding his own business, this time in Chicago. It is a beautiful sunny day. He offers to help a young woman struggling on crutches. He turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach. They are chained in a dark van racing across America. Reacher wanders why. The woman claims to be FBI and she certainly looks tough enough. But at their remote destination, will their courage and toughness be enough to overcome the odds?
Jack Reacher walks straight into another dramatic adventure that starts out as none of his business and ends being all his business. This, the second novel by Lee Child, is another gritty thriller that keeps you turning the pages. The dialogue is wonderfully tight and the characters well developed. The minimalist descriptions of location are done in such a manner that they can be visualised in your mind’s eye. This is yet another cracking novel by Lee Child.
