Venerdì, le cinque del pomeriggio. Sei spari esplodono improvvisi in una cittadina di provincia dell'Indiana. Sei colpi di fucile su una folla inerme, in una piazza del centro. Persone qualsiasi, gente che va a far spese o che sta tornando a casa per godersi il week-end. A terra cinque corpi senza vita: quattro uomini e una donna. Chi è stato? Perché? Domande che sembrano trovare risposta quando, poche ore dopo, viene arrestato un ex cecchino dell'esercito, James Barr. Le prove contro di lui sono schiaccianti, inequivocabili, eppure lui sostiene che abbiano preso la persona sbagliata, e chiede una sola cosa: "Trovatemi Jack Reacher". Ma Jack Reacher è un uomo molto difficile da trovare. Dal giorno del congedo, l'ex maggiore della polizia militare vagabonda per il Paese, fedele solo a verità e giustizia. All'insaputa di tutti, però, dalle spiagge di Miami è già partito per l'Indiana: non tanto per aiutare James Barr, ma per onorare una promessa fatta quattordici anni prima e inchiodarlo definitivamente.

Nobody should pick up a Jack Reacher novel and expect great literature. I might be wrong but I suspect that that isn’t Lee Child’s purpose. What you get instead is a good dollop of wish-fulfilment, good writing, beautiful, intelligent and feisty females who are either integral to the development of Leggi tutto
4.5/5 “You going to shoot me?” Reacher asked.“Maybe.”“You should.”“Why?”“Because if you don’t, I’m going to find you and I’m going to make you sorry.” Lee Child never ceases to amaze me with the depth and cleverness of his writing. This is the ninth installment of Jack Reacher series and it still Leggi tutto

A sniper guns down five people. The evidence against him is overwhelming. When questioned by the police he declares bluntly that they have the wrong man. Then he says, "Get Reacher." The cops have no idea who Reacher is, but you and I should know, because, if we are reading in order this is # 9 in t Leggi tutto
Good mystery-crime novel with lots of fast-paced action and even a bit of romance. If you are a Jack Reacher fan, I'm sure you will enjoy this entertaining book. As for the movie, it's kind of hard to imagine Tom Cruise as the big and tall Jack Reacher, but I still might give it a try.
Number 9 in the Jack Reacher Series. 5/5 because this was great. This story starts out of the blocks on page one and just keeps going. There is what appears to be and random act of violence. A sniper fires 6 bullets and kills 5 people. The man accused has done this before whilst still in the army in Ku Leggi tutto
I'm going to add the same review for all of the Reacher series, so if you've read this one, you've read 'em all. If you feel a certain affinity for the lone hero, a man of principle, of unwavering knowledge and assent as to his own actions, than Jack Reacher's your kinda guy. Lee Child has created a Leggi tutto
The best book in the series so far.
Again Jack Reacher appears, he is drifter & ex-military police, his strong sense of honor, he can not do any wrong in any chase and conflict. Jack Reacher Movie trailer Jack Reacher movie (2012) Based on Lee Child book In 2006, One Shot was nominated for a Macavity Award for Best Mystery Novel.
"One Shot" was turned into a vehicle for Tom Cruise and released to theaters late in 2012. I finally read the book and loved it. But a little background first. Watching the movie was my first exposure to author Lee Child's work. And after the opening scene and exposure to the hard-bitten dialogue, I Leggi tutto
