I tend to read a few other books between reading Jack Reacher books or I would start to find them a bit the same.
The Persuader is a good read but starts to get a bit to far fetched for me, although I am sure I will continue reading Jack Reacher books, once you are into the books its hard to watch the films with a very small Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher.
Reacher witnesses an attempt to kidnap a college kid from campus, in the melee, a cop gets shot. You spend a lot of time wondering if Reacher's moral compass has broken. He doesn't seem worried about the innocent cop who got killed.
Reacher manages to get the young lad to safety and back to his family. The boy's father, a "rug" importer, is extremely grateful and also security conscious, so offers Reacher a job with his security team, and a room in the family's remote mansion. Again, you're left wondering if Reacher has crossed to the dark side.
However, Reacher does spend at lot of time protecting the wife and boy & himself from the other "bouncers"', whilst also trying to find out a bit more about who would want to kidnap the lad and why. The main question is what is his father REALLY importing?
The plot keeps you guessing right up until the end. Child introduces new characters and obstacles along the way to keep the story interesting and flowing. His characters are written with consistency, and Child's description of pretty much every person and place is so rich you can imagine them as clear as day.
This time Reacher is undercover, investigating a drug dealer, and more importantly, an old enemy. There is of course, an intelligent love interest too. There is unusual gadgetry and there are gun battles as well as fist fights. This is another cracking good read.
It's hard to put my finger on why I didn't enjoy it so much as the others. I thought about it halfway through and this is probably the first book where (despite knowing this is a franchise) I didn't get the impression that Jack was going to make it to the end. But not sure why that would put me off. I also found myself page turning during a fight sequence at the gate house (trying not to give anything away). It was 4-5 pages of "he hit me here" and "I stood on his hand" and I wanted to get back to the storyline.
But it was full of suspense with Reacher having to 2nd guess what the people around him knew as he went undercover to try and retrieve a missing female agent. Would still recommend it...
If it were believable, it would be repulsive. But this is a thriller that knows its audience and delivers. It begins with a chance encounter in a Boston street, develops -through a kidnap which may or may not be genuine - into the weird lifestyle of a Persian carpet salesman who may or not be genuine. To reveal more would be unfair and, anyway, dauntingly complicated.
In time, the plot develops a counterpoint which is sustained to the end. Lee Child's achievement in this book is to keep a firm grip on the many strands of a complex plot without - once the first premise is accepted - overstepping the bounds.
It will spoil no one's enjoyment to disclose that there is a romantic involvement, nor to mention that in the end Reacher moves on. Where to? The next unlikely tale, of course. And will we follow? Of course.
You know what to expect from these books, Jack is a loner and is recruited to deal with some trouble. He goes in and deals with it.
I liked this story more than some as the set up was interesting and the villains seemed to have a bit more character and motivation than sometimes. I can see this as a decent film for the future with a few tweaks here and there.
Definitely worth a read if you like Jack Reacher or have a couple of spare hours to kill.
