A Chicago, in una splendida giornata di sole, Jack Reacher sta camminando senza meta, quando incontra una giovane donna particolarmente attraente, che zoppica e cerca di reggersi in piedi su due grucce. Ovviamente, Reacher si ferma e le offre il suo aiuto, ma non appena si voltano, i due si trovano davanti una pistola spianata. Incatenato alla donna e rinchiuso in un buio e soffocante pulmino che attraversa per 2000 miglia gli Stati Uniti, Reacher ha bisogno di sapere con chi ha a che fare. I rapitori non parlano e la sua compagna di sventura gli dice di chiamarsi Holly Johnson e di essere un'agente dell'FBI. E' una tipa abbastanza dura da risultare credibile, ma Reacher sa che lei gli sta nascondendo qualcosa.

3.5★“Extreme violence, awesome force. Whoever did that, I wouldn’t want him to get mad at me, that’s for damn sure.’” The “whoever” here was Jack Reacher, and that pretty much sums up the tone of this long ‘adventure’. I’ve read a couple of Child’s Jack Reacher novellas and short stories, but this is Leggi tutto
My Rating : 4.8/5 Die Trying is the second installment in the Jack Reacher Series. Die Trying is wrote in a third person perspective where as the first book was in first person.
