Reviews

At the start of bestseller Child's solid 12th Jack Reacher novel (after Bad Luck and Trouble), the ex-military policeman hitchhikes into Colorado, where he finds himself crossing the metaphorical and physical line that divides the small towns of Hope and Despair. Despair lives up to its name; all Reacher wants is a cup of coffee, but what he gets is attacked by four thugs and thrown in jail on a vagrancy charge. After he's kicked out of town, Reacher reacts in his usual manner--he goes back and whips everybody's butt and busts up the town's police force. In the process, he discovers, with the help of a good-looking lady cop from Hope, that a nearby metal processing plant is part of a plan that involves the war in Iraq and an apocalyptic sect bent on ushering in the end-time. With his powerful sense of justice, dogged determination and the physical and mental skills to overcome what to most would be overwhelming odds, Jack Reacher makes an irresistible modern knight-errant.

Soon after arriving in Despair, CO, the large, deadly, and enigmatic Jack Reacher, last seen in Bad Luck and Trouble, happily begins to take things into his own hands. He is a loner, a paladin, a wanderer who always seems to find trouble and always helps the good guys prevail. The towns of Hope and Despair are only a few miles apart as the crow flies, but guess which one is a dismal factory town ruled by a despotic religious fanatic? Good. Now guess which one Jack Reacher is going to take apart in his own inimitable fashion? It turns out that the fanatic believes the end of the world will come soon and wants to expedite the process. While this is going on, bodies are being found in the desert and people are disappearing. Child's 12th thriller may be formulaic and predictable, but Jack Reacher fans have always liked that about Child's novels. Recommended.

"A cert to be a number one bestseller... A version of western, of course: the drifter who comes to town, sorts out the bad guys, and moves on... He makes what he does seem simple. If it is, though, it's strange that nobody else has managed it so well" -- David Sexton * Evening Standard *
"Follows in the great Philip Marlowe pulp tradition, nuanced with a dash of Rambo and Bruce Willis... Reacher is a moody, modern outsider figure, one of the great antiheroes... a liberal intellectual with machismo, and arms the size of Popeye's" * Independent *
"Classic Child... brilliantly paced... his tough-but-fair creation, Jack Reacher, both a man's man and a ladies' man, proves once again that he's also his own man. And no one is going to get in his way" * Mirror *
"Slots a series of bone-crunching brawls into a surprisingly sinuous and zeitgeisty plot... delivers emotional depth, and Reacher's bare-knuckle sleuthing certainly keeps the adrenalin up" * Financial Times *
"A high-testosterone adventure with a thoughtful nod to what is going on in Iraq... a page turner. Thrilling" * Observer *
