Nebraska - and Jack Reacher, huge, hulking and with a freshly busted nose, is still trying to hitch a ride east to Virginia. He's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. Immediately he knows they're all lying about something - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. But they get through. Because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher a decoy?

I promise this is the last Jack Reacher novel I review. But given that this is the year that the movie of one of Childís novels is being released - starring that hopelessly miscast pretender Tom Cruise - there will be much hype around all things Reacher. Last yearís prequel The Affair showed Child back to his best and A Wanted Man isnít far off it. My mate felt there wasnít enough Jack dealing to the bad guys in it, but Iím a girl and a little bit of sensitive Jack was fine by me. Basically itís the same premise - Jack encounters bad guys and vulnerable woman; Jack, through smarts, bravery and physical strength, overcomes bad guys and saves vulnerable woman; Jack moves on. Whatís not to love?

Reacher

I also found this book a bit slower than the rest but still a good read. I can not wait to see the movie but am disapointed Tom Cruise is cast as Reacher. I like Melissa suggestion of Daniel Craig.

a wanted man

This is a simmering, slow burning book- where Jack Reacher slowly and tortuously works out who the bad guys are. Then explodes into what he does best and starts a one man war to save himself, his friends and coincidently does some good for his country. Then, as usual, Jack moves on.
A slower paced book to start, but once he gets going he quickly adds to the body count.

A Wanted Man by Lee Child

14 Sep 2012, 10:13am | Review by Angela Hodson
I felt this book was a lot slower in parts and more sensitive to a female reader. In saying that, the book also had it's twists and turns to keep one in suspense. I have read all the books so far and would still recommend reading this book to anyone that likes the previous books.

Can't wait to read this last book. Not sure about the movie, your right about the cast of Tom Cruise???? Not even close. Who should it have been? Vin Diesel, Daniel Craig...
