TGIF it’s finally here, another Friday and let the weekend festivities begin!
Today’s review is about the book, due to be published on November 5th.
On the road again
Just can’t wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again (Willie Nelson)
Jack Reacher is once again a traveling man. His goal is to walk from Maine to California (yikes) and so when he travels onto a road in New England, he randomly comes upon a sign which he recognizes. It seems to be he has stumbled onto a town which just so happened to be the birthplace of his father. Of course he needs to check this place out. What’s a slight detour and one more day!
Arriving at the town and bumping up against the fact that no one seems to recognize the Reacher name, Jack embarks on another adventure sure to involve lots of mysterious and dangerous factors. Meanwhile a Canadian couple, traveling to New York, have their dilapidated car stop, and amble to a hotel where things turn creepy fast. (a bit of the Psycho vibe happening here)
Through the bulk of the story, we wonder how or if these two things are connected. What does Jack’s family and this young couple have in common? How do they meet and come together and have their lives intertwine with each other. For Jack the danger is real. For the couple their fate is perilous and threatening.
Tough and resilient as we who know Jack Reacher to be, this book will not disappoint those who have been with Lee Child for many of his adventures with Jack. Recommended to those who like a tough, what you see is what you get type protagonist. He is the epitome of a tenacious and resilient character who you would certainly want in your corner in a bar fight or any other precarious exploit.
Thank you to Lee Child, Delacourt Press, and NetGalley for a copy of this latest Reacher exploit.
