Xavier Francis Quinn: un nome rimasto nella memoria di Jack Reacher sin dai tempi in cui era maggiore della Polizia militare. Un criminale, un traditore del suo Paese e, soprattutto, un sadico assassino che ha ucciso barbaramente una collega di Jack che stava indagando su di lui ed era vicina a incastrarlo. Sono trascorsi dieci anni e, dopo una sparatoria di incredibile violenza, Reacher si trova, come sempre, nel posto sbagliato al momento sbagliato. O forse no. Perché adesso Reacher è tornato a lavorare con l'FBI, convinto da Susan Duffy, un'affascinante e coraggiosa federale, a infiltrarsi in una banda di trafficanti. L'obiettivo è cercare di salvare un'agente sotto copertura sparita da più di due settimane. Ma Reacher sa per certo che dietro tutta l'organizzazione c'è il suo nemico, Quinn, e vuole due cose sole: giustizia e vendetta. Per ottenerle è disposto a giocare il tutto per tutto, anche la sua stessa vita...

People were depending on me. I had been beaten many times. But I had never just quit. Not once. Not ever. This book! OMG, my heart is still beating so fast as though it's going to jump out of my chest! What an adrenaline-pumping ride! Ok, take a deep breath... Alright, I will keep this short as I k
Jack Reacher is often found minding his own business when something happens right in front of him that propels him into another mission. In this case, he's walking down a street in Boston when he sees a dead man--or at least a man who is supposed to have been dead for ten years. And if anyone should Leggi tutto
The Persuader (Jack Reacher #7), Lee Child Persuader is the seventh book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child. It is written in the first person. Jack Reacher is working unofficially, with the DEA to bring down a boy's father, Zachary Beck, who is suspected of smuggling drugs, under the p Leggi tutto
I am totally loving this series. (Although I think it must be best NOT to read them back to back because then the formula wears through.) This is a good one -- tense, claustrophobic, and non-stop action. Two quibbles -- the romance between Reacher and Duffy seems...unmotivated. Like the author says
This is the first Jack Reacher book I’ve read. Maybe I should have started with the first one in the series, but I picked up this one used. For fifty cents. Reading some of the Goodreads comments about the varied quality of the Reacher series, I was probably better off starting with this one. The tri Leggi tutto
This bad-ass walks around with an anaconda in his pants (apparently, that's a type of revolver but it's still pretty impressive) He has an AOL device hidden in his shoe. He says nothing a lot. So does everyone else in this novel. I'm not cut out for crime fiction. It bugs me.
Its always such a treat to read a Reacher book and definitely a good way to start 2022. I love this series so much. At this point I feel like I know Reacher extremely well so I spent the first chapter of this book thinking, this isn't the Reacher I know. Why is he behaving like this? He felt very ou Leggi tutto
To me this was the best of the series after Killing Floor.
4-stars, perhaps a bit more. This and "Echo Burning" are by far Child's best books in the series (so far). The pacing is terrific, mostly. The dialogue and action are very good, mostly. The climax is good, but too drawn-out in parts. The plot is very, very clever. This would have been 5-stars if not Leggi tutto
Gigantic hobo detective Jack Reacher once again wanders into more trouble than any happy-go-lucky wanderer would reasonably expect. This time, after encountering a ghost from his past, a man named Quinn who should be dead, Reacher gets involved in an undercover DEA operation to take the man and his
