Now I know I reviewed a Jack Reacher novel last year, but there’s a reason for reviewing him again this year. One, is that Lee Child is touring here and Paper Plus is hosting a Books and Bubbles featuring Lee in Auckland on Monday April 12. The other is that when I last heard Lee Child speak at an author’s evening a number of years ago he warned that Jack Reacher had a limited life span. He thought he had about thirteen books in him - thirteen adventures for Jack Reacher to live through; thirteen tough sexy women for Reacher to have; thirteen bad guys - minimum- for Reacher to have dispatched into Hell. This, 61 Hours, is Lee Child’s 14th novel. Does this mean the end for our tall, laconic, world weary hero? Will he be able to fight his way out of a desperate dead end just one more time? Read it and see. A gripping action thriller as his fans have come to expect. For more information about Books and Bubbles visit booksandbubbles.co.nz

This was my first read from the series, and having now read a few more, in comparison I wouldn't rate this as my favourite. I found it a little easy to get lost at points, and the wrap up was a bit quick for my liking. However - good enough to get me hooked on the series and I'm sure long-time fans will be very happy with an addition to the series.
