Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise. When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose, patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys ... Will they get through because the three are innocent?Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy? With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best. 'He could take out Bond, Dirty Harry, Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt with both hands tied behind his back,. And then sleep with their girlfriends two at a time before getting the last bus out of town' Sun

In many ways Reacher is like a fine wine - he just gets better with age. This book follows the standard formula - Reacher is just minding his own business but just seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The problem with this book is the story just didn't work. It started out interesting, but it just got too convoluted and well....silly. The premise of three poorly trained and equipped individual assaulting a terrorist hideout (with an unknown number of terrorists) without a plan (because a plan never survives first contact) didn't work for me. Why didn’t the terrorists have night vision equipment? Why didn't they hear the gunshots? Sorry, I couldn't suspend reality that much.

Probably the worst Reacher novel so far. Worth 3 stars - because it is Reacher

This is a great read - one of Lee Child's best. Jack Reacher is full of ironic humour despite the fast pace of this suspenseful novel. There are a few laugh out loud moments peppered throughout the book.
