«Puoi lasciare l’esercito, ma l’esercito non lascia te. Non sempre. Non completamente.»
E infatti Jack Reacher deve tornare in servizio, richiamato dal dipartimento di Stato e dalla CIA. Qualcuno ha colpito il presidente francese mentre teneva un di¬scorso a Parigi. Un solo colpo, sparato con estrema precisione da una distanza eccezionalmente lunga, un colpo che sarebbe stato letale se non l’avessero fermato le barriere protettive. E il proiettile… è americano.
Quanti cecchini sono in grado di fare fuoco da quasi un chilometro con una tale sicurezza? Pochissimi, e tra loro c’è di certo John Kott, una vecchia conoscenza di Reacher, che quindici anni prima lo ha mandato in galera. Ora Kott è libero e, con il G8 in corso, non è affatto una buona notizia…
La strada che Jack Reacher ha di fronte è disseminata di scelte difficili, spietati mafiosi, ex mercenari e soprattutto nessuna possibilità di chiedere aiuto. Ad affiancarlo nella sua caccia c’è Casey Nice, una giovanissima ma brillante (oltre che affascinante) analista. Ma entrare in azione con una donna al proprio fianco riporta Reacher all’ultima, drammatica occasione in cui ha lavorato in coppia, e alla fine tragica della sua partner. Non può permettere che accada di nuovo. Questa volta non può commettere nessun errore. È una questione personale…

hmmmmm....what can I say? I love Jack Reacher. I love Lee Child. I've been a massive fan from the very start. I've recommended his books to dozens of people...probably hundreds! I've shared countless books with neighbors, co-workers and friends. I pour a cup of coffee and I think of Reacher. I bu... Leggi tutto
I see England, I see France, I see Reacher's underpants. No, only fooling. I've never seen Jack Reacher's undies, although I wouldn't mind doing so as long as it was the real Reacher and not the Tom Cruise midget H ack Reacher Hollywood version. Does Reacher even wear underwear? Has Lee Child ever... Leggi tutto

I LOVE Jack Reacher and have read ALL Lee Child's Reacher books but this one (and the one before, I have found disappointing to say the least in fact I have closed the latest, after giving it a good chance, and will not finish it. The "edge" seems to have gone from the books with lots of wanderin... Leggi tutto
I see there is a lot of debate between Lee Child fans about whether this is a good book or not. I liked it four stars worth! Okay it was a bit different especially as the action takes place in Europe instead of America. I actually found that a refreshing change. And it does get a bit wordy in par... Leggi tutto
I've read every Reacher novel Lee Child ever wrote. Some of them are good, and some of them are magnificent. Recently there have been a few substandard, but Personal is the worst Reacher novel I've ever read. It was even worse than the one where he was supposedly being held prisoner in a car, and...

If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Ive one rule when it comes to reading. Never read thrillers, but as always I ended up reading the latest Jack Reacher Always coming back to the Jack Reacher novels reminds me why thrillers are such an engaging reading experience (maybe...

A page turner filled with action, thrills and violence aplenty. However it feels like something is missing that exists in the other Jack Reacher books. I don't think Jack being the narrator helps as it seems to spoil the action having everything explained, often beforehand. Enjoyable and a quick...
Book 19 in the Jack Reacher series published 2014. This was not Lee Child at his best. For the first time ever reading a Jack Reacher story I got bored. Jack finds himself in London and other European cities but mostly London trying to track down a sniper that has just attempted to assassinate the F... Leggi tutto
