Ex maggiore della polizia militare, Jack Reacher ha mollato l’esercito e se ne va in giro per gli Stati Uniti, senza una meta precisa e con molto tempo per raggiungerla. Questa volta, a tirarlo su dall’asfalto rovente del Texas, c’è una donna, molto bella, che si chiama Carmen e che ha una storia da raccontare, piuttosto triste e complicata. C’entrano un marito, decisamente violento e che sta uscendo di prigione, molti segreti di famiglia e una cittadina poco ospitale. Ma Carmen ha anche un piano, e per lei Jack è proprio l’uomo giusto al momento giusto...

In "Killing Floor" (which I thoroughly enjoyed), Lee Child introduced an electric main character named Jack Reacher. He is ex-military and wanders from place to place. He is smart and a violent badass to anyone who messes with him or those he cares about. In Reacher, Child has created a character wh Leggi tutto
After he accidentally beats up a cop in a small west Texas town, Jack Reacher need to get out of town in a hurry. (Of course, he didn't accidentally beat up the cop; he did it on purpose. But when the guy picked a fight with Reacher, Jack didn't know he was a cop.) Happily, only a few minutes after
Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books are to the action thriller genre as AC/DC is to rock music: a revved up, entertaining, if not altogether original or thoughtful collection of INYERFACE! vignettes and tied together with a BACK IN BLACK street cred. Reacher takes the HIGHWAY TO HELL for his next adventur Leggi tutto

A real page-turner! Echo Burning is the fifth installment in Jack Reacher series and the series itself keeps getting better and better. The plot was intense, exciting, and thrilling, exactly as I expected. Despite the fact that the story moved at a very fast pace, I still felt like I couldn't turn th Leggi tutto
“Pantser” was--and may well still be--a term used in the publishing industry to describe authors who do not plot, who “write by the seat of their pants.” And while you can’t always tell if a particular writer is a pantser, there are certain books and series where there is absolutely no doubt that th Leggi tutto
Lee Child has many qualities of a great author. His characters do things. His characters talk. His characters act in reasonable ways. Child lets the reader into Reacher's head. We get to see the decisions he makes. We understand why those decisions are made. One would think this would make for a ver Leggi tutto
Now I suppose the question is, after 5 novels am I already falling out of love with Jack Reacher (now don't get me wrong he's not really my type 😳 , but I have enjoyed his larger than life (literally) character). Well hopefully the answer is no. I did enjoy this book and would give it 3.5 stars if I Leggi tutto
One of the better Reacher books. I have given 3 positive reviews in a row here...pretty good. This book has what I'd call an "interesting" opening... If you've read many of my reviews you know I use that word, frequently. It says so much. Reacher upon smacking someone (else) in the nose makes the dist Leggi tutto
I just can't make myself like this at all. Jack Reacher is in Texas after breaking up with Jodie in New York, back to living like a bum in cheap motels, carrying only a toothbrush and cash (but no ID), walking and hitchhiking everywhere, and throwing away clothes rather than wash them. He's also sti Leggi tutto
